Blow to Waititu as he loses bid to access his office

Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has lost a bid he had made to have the High Court review his Sh15 million bail terms and also allow him to access his office.

Judge Ngenye Macharia on Thursday said that given the gravity of the charges leveled against Waititu, the terms were reasonable.

“It was reasonable for the lower court to issue the conditions. Charges facing him are grave and stringent bail terms must be attached,” Macharia ruled.

The judge added that Governor Waititu will only access office once to pick his personal items in the presence of an investigation officer.

“In as much as they are innocent it will be a mockery to the Constitution if such people are allowed to continue with dealing with the county jobs,”  judge Macharia ruled.

Last week on Monday, Waititu, his wife and eight others were charged with flaunting procurement laws in the awarding of a Sh588 million tender. The Kiambu County boss was released on a bail of Sh15 million and his wife on a Sh4 million.
