Waititu was arrested after more than six hours of interrogation following a dawn raid by the detectives in his Runda and Garden Estate homes in Nairobi.
The detectives were searching for vital documents as the EACC steps up their graft probe over audit queries in Kiambu county.
15 other county officials are also under the EACC radar over the matter.
Earlier this month, the Kiambu County Government presented the Senate with a financial statement showing Waititu may have allocated budgets for functions unrelated to Kiambu.

” I am in a big problem, EACC has raided my home and they want to arrest me and DP Ruto is not picking my calls. President Uhuru has told me to carry my own cross or tell Ruto to help me. I didn’t know Ruto is powerless in Jubilee Government. Now its only Raila who can help me. ” ~Gov. Waititu
