  • Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu announced plans to try his hand at the county's gubernatorial seat again.

    During an interview with Inooro TV on Tuesday, January 24, Waititu stated that he had a lot of incomplete projects that he would like to work on for the sake of Kiambu residents.

    Even though he exuded confidence in the current county boss, Kimani Wamatangi, the former governor noted that he wouldn't rule out the idea of going back to serve Kiambu.

    “I have many projects I had not concluded with James Nyoro as my deputy. There are those that have been completed by Wamatangi but others are still stuck at the point I left them," Waititu highlighted.

    According to the former governor, he had already set aside Ksh400 million to build a market in Kiambu before his impeachment, a project he would like to complete if elected again.

    The former Embakasi and Kabete Member of Parliament (MP) further added that Kiambu residents regretted impeaching him.

    “I know Kiambu people love me. They regretted impeaching me, after finding out they were all allegations. The cases were dropped due to lack of evidence,” he stated.

    The ex-county boss could not hide his disappointment at his former deputy who benefitted from his impeachment as he explained how Nyoro betrayed him while he lifted him up as his deputy.

    He noted that Nyoro took the advantage of being on good terms with government officials who pressured him to lead his ouster.

    “He planned for my removal and qualified because Fred Matiang'i was his classmate and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission(EACC) boss was his best friend so they planned with false accusations so that I can be impeached,” he expounded.

    Speaking about his recent appointment by President William Ruto as a board member of the Nairobi Rivers Commission, Waititu announced employment for the youths and promised to make it public how they would apply.

    “We will employ people to look after the rivers to prevent those who are contaminating Nairobi Water,” he uttered.
