    EACC charges Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza over husband’s appointment.

    Published on

    By appointing her husband, Murega Baicu, to two county positions, Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza has been charged by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) of breaching Chapter Six of the Constitution.

    Twalib Mbarak, CEO of the EACC, wrote to the governor of Meru. Even though Baicu is not a public officer, Mbarak expressed worry about his attending official county activities and assigning tasks.

    Although Mwangaza assured EACC that her husband would be working for free within the county, EACC nevertheless objected to the appointment.

    Mwangaza is also charged with hiring two of her sisters, one as a personal assistant and the other as a bodyguard.

    Mbarak pointed out that this would lead to a conflict of interest, which is against the constitutional mandate on the appointment of a state official.

    Additionally, the county administrator is being accused of ordering her staff to utilize their personal social media accounts to promote her and her policies.
