Court freezes Ex- Kiambu Governor Waititu’s property worth Sh. 1.9 billion

The High Court has frozen former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu's assets valued at Sh. 1.9 billion pending determination of a forfeiture suit filed by EACC.

EACC says Waititu and his wife own unexplained assets amassed by Waititu from 2015 when he was the Kabete MP up to 2020 when he served as Kiambu governor.

In the case filed by the anti-corruption watchdog, the couple's unexplained wealth empire comprise of landed property, luxurious motor vehicles and money transacted through bank accounts. Part of the wealth is registered under Waititu’s three trading companies namely;- Saika two estate developers limited, Bienvenue delta hotel and Bins management services limited.

EACC says that Waititu’s income from salary and his known legitimate business during the said period could not have exceeded Sh. 110 million which means he made wealth that is 17 times more.

Waitutu acquired five luxury motor vehicles, 15 properties including in upmarket suburbs of Runda, Migaa and Thindigua and three multi-storey buildings situated in Nairobi Central Business District.

EACC is also questioning how Waititu's wife through Suwanga Limited and Connex Logistics Africa Limited traded with the County Government of Kiambu and received a sum of Sh. 16,423,418.

EACC also wants answers on how she acquired four pieces of land in Kajiado and Kabete valued at Sh. 19 million and one motor vehicle that she co-owns with Ekeza Savings.
Also in the list is an amount of Sh. 276.2 million held in her three bank accounts.
