The EACC Has Swallowed the Property of Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu

The plight of former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu is intensifying as the EACC’s anti-corruption commission swallows its assets.

The anti-corruption commission has now filed a lawsuit seeking to seize property worth more than 1.9 billion shillings owned by the former governor.

An investigation by the commission has revealed that Waititu abused his power when he was Kabete MP and later governor of Kiambu between 2015 and 2020.

According to the commission, the former governor was involved in the awarding of poor procurement contracts where the companies awarded the contracts by the Kiambu County government, handed over the contracts to Waititu, his wife Susan Wangari and former owners of Saika Two Estates Developers. Limited, Bienvenue Delta Hotel and Bins Management Services Limited.

Waititu is also accused of doing business directly with the Kiambu County government, through the companies of his wife Susan Wangari.

“The governor did business directly with the county government through companies registered with his wife and daughter, namely Suwanga Limited, Connex Logistics Africa Limited, and Modiba Management Services Limited,” the EACC said.

In an effort to cover up the illicit money, Waitutu bought five luxury cars, 15 houses on Runda, Migaa and Thindigua streets, as well as three multi-storey buildings located in central Nairobi.
