Governor Ferdinand Waititu of Kiambu presented himself at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) headquarters on Sunday July 28, after being “out of town since Friday July 26” when news broke out that he was wanted for prosecution.

A manhunt was launched on Saturday morning for the Kenyan Governor, his wife Susan Wangari Ndungu and twelve others for allegedly misappropriating public funds amounting to Sh588 Million (N2bn).

Apart from Waititu and his wife, others declared wanted are M/S Testimony Enterprises Limited co-director Beth Wangeci, Chege’s wife and three other tender evaluation committee members, Zacharia Njenga Mbugua, Anselm Gachukia Wanjiku and Samuel Muigai Mugo. The county chief and his wife are directors of Bieneveu Delta Hotel Limited while the latter and daughter Monica Njeri Ndung’u, are directors of Saika Two Estate Developers Limited, both under probe. A search party for Waititu’s wife and five others is still on going.
