BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,23RD MAY 2019-Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has been arrested and taken to the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) headquarters in Nairobi for questioning over alleged graft-related issues.
This comes just hours after ,EACC detectives raided his houses in Garden City and Runda at dawn on Thursday and spend the better part of the day searching them .
Waititu was expected to record a statement over alleged corruption in his administration’s Kaa Sober program which is aimed at rehabilitating alcoholics.
The Kiambu County Assembly has already passed a supplementary budget allocating over Sh 700 million to the initiative.
The EACC is also looking for 15 more officials of the county over what is said its playing a role covering up to conceal irregular expenses under the Kaa Sober program.
