Thursday June 27, 2019-Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu on Thursday met a top Jubilee Government official where he begged him to help him reach President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The governor, according to multiple sources, met the Jubilee man at his office in Nairobi where he pleaded with him to urge the President to order the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) stop harassing him and his family.
Waititu, who is not spending nights in either of his two Nairobi homes for fear of arrest, reportedly told the man that he was ready to ditch Deputy President William Ruto if the EACC drops the probe against him.
The embattled Governor told the PS that he had realised his mistake of going against the President by joining Ruto in his premature campaigns and would henceforth not accompany the DP in any function.
He vowed to start anti-Ruto campaigns in Kiambu once the EACC stops probing him over corruption in the county government.
Waititu is being sought by EACC and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over misappropriating Sh 2.5 billion meant for his county development.
