SH 588 MILLION
He, however, clarified that it will not be held at the county headquarters in Kiambu town.
Mr Waititu has been barred from office for the duration of the case involving the irregular procurement of a Sh588 million tender for upgrading various gravel roads to bitumen standard in Kiambu.
He is facing charges alongside his wife Susan Wangari Ndung’u and six others.
“I do not have to operate county activities from my office at the county headquarters. I can do it from anywhere. The court was very clear that the only place I cannot access is the county headquarters, but Kiambu is a very big county with a lot of places to conduct and run the affairs of the people who voted for me,” Mr Waititu said.
The embattled governor inspected roads in the county and later toured Wangige Level 4 Hospital that is under construction. He took a swipe at the contractor, informing him that the project was behind schedule. The project is partly funded by the World Bank.
