The anti-graft agency has told a court how Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, his wife and their daughter might have pocketed millions in kickbacks for contracts awarded by the government.

In an affidavit before a Kiambu court, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) accuses the governor of receiving kickbacks through his bank accounts and accounts of companies associated with him, his wife Susan Wangari Ndung’u and their daughter Monica Njeri.

The affidavit by EACC investigator Regina Ng’ang’a details how two companies the commission said are owned by the three, received up to Sh30.6 million from a firm awarded a tender to construct roads late last year and early this year.

EACC said Testimony Enterprises Limited, which had been “irregularly” paid a substantial amount "without producing certificates required to show the work done", received Sh180 million between April last year and last April.
