Saturday August 3, 2019-Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, has surprised Kenyans after he was spotted inspecting county projects despite court banning him from office over his involvement in Sh 588 graft case.
On Saturday, Waititu, who is out on a Sh 15 million bail, inspected the ongoing construction at Wangige Level Four Hospital and Kikuyu market.
The construction of the market is partly funded by the World Bank.
Addressing journalists after inspection, Waititu said he will chair a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday at a place of his choice but not county headquarters.
According to his lawyers Tom Ojienda and Nelson Havi, Waititu was banned from going to Kiambu county offices but he was not banned from executing his duties as a governor of the expansive county.
“The ruling did not stop him from being governor. A governor does not necessarily need an office to do his work,” Ojienda told journalists on Friday.
