Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and his wife Susan Wangari Ndung’u are set to spend the night in police custody pending arraignment over alleged graft of Ksh.588 million public funds.


The two presented themselves to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Sunday after Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered for their arrest on Friday.

"I find that the award of the contract for Ksh.588,198,328.20 with respect to tender No.CGK/RTPW&U/142/2017-2018- for the upgrading of various gravel roads to Bitumen surface in Thika, Limuru, Gatundu North, Juja and Ruiru sub-counties was skewed in favor of M/s Testimony Enterprises Ltd, and the county government officials were culpable,” said the DPP in a statement.

"The directors of M/s Testimony Enterprises Ltd were close associates of Ferdinand Ndung’u Waititu Babayao, the Governor of Kiambu County. The total amount of Ksh.147,274,055.39 has so far been irregularly paid to Testimony Enterprises Ltd in relation to the subject tender.”

The couple and other county workers are expected to answer questions over graft tomorrow.
