Kiambu County Executive Committee (CEC) Member in charge of Roads, Transport and Public Works, on Thursday, hinted via his Twitter handle, that his embattled Governor, Ferdinard Waititu, will soon start prayers rallies across the county to end his problems with the law.
The CEC stated that he believes the prayer rallies freed President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto from the ICC and are the perfect solutions to the recent corruption and tax evasion charges facing Waititu.
Governor Waititu is facing charges over illegal award of county tenders worth Ksh588 million and failure to remit taxes to the Kenya Revenue Authority.

He is also among the eight governors on the radar of the tax collector for failure to remit billions of shilling deducted from workers’ salaries.
KRA accuses him for failing to remit Ksh3.2 billion the county had been deducting taxes from their workforce.
KRA is also taking a closer look at the governor’s tax records. On Thursday, the embattled county boss was summoned by the tax collector over an ongoing probe on his Saika Two Estate Two Estate Developers Ltd tax status.
Furthermore, the governor is engaged in a fierce battle with his deputy, James Nyoro, over the control of the county.
In late July, Nyoro announced that he was in charge of the county after Milimani High Court Judge, Lawrence Mugambi, barred Waititu from accessing the county’s offices until the Ksh 588 million tender corruption case is heard and determined.
