Who will save drowning waititu?

Kiambu county boss Ferdinand Waititu is under siege after the Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission raided his homes in Runda and Garden Estate in a corruption investigation. The officers arrested Waititu and took him to their offices for questioning.

This follows his latest woe that made his county dominate the airwaves after the currently corrected auditor General Edward Ouko’s report that the Kiambu County Government allocated Sh 973 million for State House Affairs (Co-ordination of State House functions).

Waititiu claimed that the document “could have been a misuse of the National Government template in the Treasury for Kiambu County” but the senators were not convinced.

The deputy president who is also heavily embattled by graft allegations then jumped to his rescue. Speaking at the Komothai All Saint Catholic Church in Githunguri, Ruto pointed out questions to do with State House, South Sudan or retired presidents can only be answered by appropriate government officials.

Ouko later  cleared Waititu saying the audit queries flagged by the Senate committee were an issue of “bad reporting”.

Regarding his latest troubles, Kenyans are waiting to see which politicians are going to defend the governor as has been the case since the war on graft heightened. Instead of supporting the war, a majority have been viewed taking sides and politicising the matters which end up disappearing in thin air.

Who do you think will fight for Waititu this time round?

Orange Democratic Party’s Etale has expressed that Waititu will blame his woes on opposition leader Raila.

“In the spirit of Tangatanga, he will call a press conference and say it is ‘Laira’ who sent EACC officers to raid his home. And the Aisha will sing ‘hakuna…… kama….”. Kenya has a million brilliant people,” he tweeted.

Non-surprised Kenyans have not been moved by the arrest as graft nabs have become monotonous with nothing positive obtained afterwards as the suspects often walk free after days of dominating media headline with their crimes.
