EACC to challenge court’s ruling on Waititu bail as graft probe continues

-

The complex task of joining dots in the investigations into the irregular award of tenders in Kiambu County government worth Sh588 million continued over the weekend with detectives requesting banks to provide details of 50 accounts that have been fingered for suspect deposits.

The Nation has established that the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is after the bank accounts associated with governor Ferdinand Waititu, his family members and proxies.

The financial institutions have been asked to provide a breakdown of all transactions including balance sheets of the bank accounts.

The agency is also looking at 35 different properties, which include luxurious mansions that the governor is constructing in Runda estate, the Delta Hotel building situated in Nairobi CBD worth billions of shillings and a luxurious tourist hotel located in Naivasha, to establish whether they were acquired through corruption or through proceeds of corruption.
