” 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
The outspoken governor, popularly known as Baba Yao, is under the EACC spotlight over alleged corruption in a number of his county programmes, including Kaa Sober, which was aimed at rehabilitating alcoholics.
Sources have it that 15 other officials of the county government are targeted in the ongoing investigations.
