In Summary

  • Waititu admitted that he owns buildings in Nairobi but explained that he acquired them through bank loans, way before he was elected governor.
  • He dismissed claims that he had issued tenders worth millions to his family members, accusing his political rivals of propagating a smear campaign against him.

Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu says he is ready to undergo a lifestyle audit to clear the air on properties he owns.

Speaking in Kiambu Town on Sunday, Waititu admitted that he owns buildings in Nairobi but explained that he acquired them through bank loans, way before he was elected governor.

“When people start questioning what the other person owns, let them first go to the bank and ascertain the amount of loan on has. I am not forbidden from taking a loan. I can even take a Ksh.1 billion or Ksh.3 billion,” said Waititu.

He dismissed claims that he had issued tenders worth millions to his family members, accusing his political rivals of propagating a smear campaign against him.

“All these claims you are seeing even on social media that I have issued tenders worth over Ksh.500 million are being peddled by my rivals. They are all lies,” said Waititu.

The Kiambu Governor has been on the spot over allegations of misuse of public funds, with reports indicating that he is under investigations.

Waititu said he had not received any summons from the investigating agencies, adding that he was ready to honour the same any time.
