Embattled Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has rubbished widespread allegations that he used his daughter’s bank account to embezzle county funds, Insisting that no amount of intimidation will change his political stand, and his support for the DP remains paramount.
Speaking during a church funds drive at Makutano center in Trans Nzoia County on Sunday, Waititu further stated that he fears only two things in life; God and steaming hot porridge.
The Kiambu County boss also dismissed claims that his daughter has been making money from the tenders allocated to her by the county government. He further said that allegations linking him to 50 bank accounts are baseless and ill-driven.
“Wanadanganyana huko Facebook eti wasichana wangu wako na accounts na iko na mamilioni na ni uongo… wanasema eti niko na account hamsini na hiyo yote ni uwongo,” he said “Siwezi kulazimishwa kumfuata yoyote, kwa sababu mimi namwogopa Mungu na uji moto peke yake kwa hii maisha.” He added
The embattled Kiambu County chief further blamed his recent run-ins with the law on a section of the political class not impressed with his closeness and support for Deputy President William Ruto.
Waititu was on Thursday last week arrested following an early morning raid on his homes in Runda, Garden Estate and Kiambu by detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
