DPP Noordin Haji has ordered the arrest of Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and 12 others over the illegal award of a roads upgrade tender and embezzlement of county funds.
In a statement on Friday, Haji said the award of the Sh588 million contract was done irregularly.
The contract was awarded to Testimony Enterprises during the 2017-18 financial year. It was for the upgrade of gravel roads to bituminous surface in Thika, Limuru, Gatundu North, Juja and Ruiru subcounties.
EACC forwarded an inquiry file to the DPP’s office on July 9 and evidence showed the tender award was skewed in favour of Testimony Enterprises.
The directors of Testimony are close associates of Waititu’s.
