Saturday August 10, 2019-Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, has set up parallel offices in Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD), in complete violation of court orders that placed his Deputy, James Nyoro, in charge of Kiambu County.
On Thursday, the High Court order allowed Waititu to vacate his Kiambu office, giving him a deadline of one day to pick his belongings.
Close sources to Waititu revealed that the Thursday court order seriously affected his day-to-day operations as the governor cannot consult his juniors.
The sources revealed that Waititu shifted camp to the tenth floor of his Koinange Street office, at a building he recently bought from Jamii Bora Bank.
Reports have it that Waititu has been holding several meetings with executives who are loyal to him.
Waititu’s new move has seen county executives’ loyalties split between the two men as they are not sure of whom to report to.
“Not much is happening in Kiambu. Power politics has stalled progress; we are also confused on who to report to,” one of the executives, seeking anonymity revealed.
Waititu, his wife, daughter and some Kiambu officials are facing corruption related charges after they were accused of running down the County Government for their selfish benefits
