This has forced the controversial governor to reveal his source of income through which he makes his millions.
Waititu revealed that most of his millions come from collecting garbage and selling plots in Nairobi’s Westlands area.He further revealed that he was a rich person before he joined politics.
“I am a self-made tycoon, having been a garbage collector in the city through Bins Management Service. I am not a poor man as portrayed by my political enemies,” he stated.
He further refuted claims that he is corrupt explaining that his political posts have only expanded their business and that his troubles are caused by his political detractors who are envious of his genuine wealth.
“Mimi nilijipanga kitambo kabla niingie siasa wakati nilikua nauza mchanga (I started making money selling sand long before I switched to politics),” he continued.
This comes at a time when the troubled governor is entangled in a dispute with Auditor General Edward Ouko over suspicious expenditures in the 2017/18 county budget.
