The High Court has issued orders to freeze accounts and assets belonging to Wilson Nashon Kanani, an employee at Nairobi County and one of the directors at the popular 1824 bar

The High Court has issued orders to freeze accounts and assets belonging to Wilson Nashon Kanani, an employee at Nairobi County and one of the directors at the popular 1824 bar.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) are underway with investigations into claims that Mr. Kanani through his office, received bribes and kickbacks thereby accumulating massive wealth.

According to court documents, Mr. Kanani who earns a net monthly salary of KSH. 55,000, received and channeled at least KSH. 506M through bank accounts held in his name, companies associated with him, his family members including his spouse and his minor children and family members between January 2016 and October 2022.

Following an application by the EACC, the anti-corruption division of the High Court in Nairobi froze 11 bank accounts owned by Mr Kanani and his family members.

The court was told Mr. Kanani is associated with five companies; Wilman Auto Invests, Wilman Auto Invests (Logistics), Willy Walla International Limited, Wilcoreg Limited and Regineez Enterprises Limited, which are reasonably suspected to have traded with the Nairobi City County Government.

In addition, his under age children have a sum of at least KSH. 3M in their bank account.

The court also barred Mr. Kanani and his family from disposing two Mercedes Benz vehicles registered to him.

Mr. Kanani, whose role at City Hall is to run after outdoor advertising companies to make sure their billboards and other signages do not violate national and county laws, is also a director at 1824 Bar, a business estimated to be making at least KSH. 5M per month, as revealed by the court.

One of his companies, Wilcoreg Limited, has been established to be in the pool of mega suppliers in Nairobi and Siaya Counties.

Detectives revealed that at one time, as one of his companies received KSH. 278M deposit, his personal account at I&M bank received KSH. 181M.

According to court papers, Mr Kanani has not declared any source of income to City Hall other than his KSH. 55,000 salary.
