Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza denies claims of nepotism, corruption

The governor made the claims in response to an inquiry by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) over allegations of engaging in conflict of interest, failure to protect public resources and nepotism in appointing county officials.

In the response filed through lawyer Danstan Omari, the governor denied the allegations, claiming cartels who are not happy with her bid to block corruption avenues are out to cripple her administration.

According to the governor, the impeachment was being sponsored by some MCAs to force her to give them ward development funds, when the law does not provide for such a fund.
