Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and his wife Susan Ndung’u have been trending on social media since arriving at Milimani Law Courts after spending the night at the Integrity Center.
Detectives had almost given up looking for the duo when they surrendered themselves at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission offices on Sunday following an arrest order issued by DPP Noordin Haji.
Kenyans have blasted the couple, insisting that their arrest is shameful and a bad example to any African family setting.
This is very very bad and shameful, even in the early days men didn’t take their wives and children to a hunt.
A whole family jailed.
Ulafi ni kitu mbaya.

Joining in the discussion, City Lawyer Donald Kipkorir has urged the Anti-corruption court not to grant bails to the two since they have demonstrated the ability to ‘disappear’ while suggesting electronic tagging as the perfect remedy for the couple.
Granting of Bail in Court isn’t an absolute right but conditional. Ferdinand Waititu & his wife have demonstrated ability to “disappear” … The Anti-Corruption Court should deny them Bail … If granted, it should be on such onerous terms including electronic tagging. pic.twitter.com/6Nbz6Hb9Vq

Here is what Kenyans have to say on Waititu’s arrest;
Now who is the Governor now that babayao and mamayao are in police custody?
