The EACC said that Governor Kawira Mwangaza of Meru and County First Gentleman Murega Baicu are using delaying tactics to avoid scrutiny.
On Saturday, October 29, the anti-graft commission released a statement in which it accused the two of indulging in theatrical distractions and sideshows that were unrelated to the charges against them.
According to EACC’s request, the accusations of conflict of interest, nepotism, and abuse of office were the only ones covered in the letter’s subject. That’s why the commission decided to keep its distance from the couple’s personal issues.
Commission officials said that Governor Mwangaza and Baicu were employing theatricals to politicize and denigrate the agency’s efforts.
In response to public criticism, the commission urged the public not to engage but reject allegations that it had prevented Baicu from accessing the governor’s official mansion.
It also denied reports that Baicu had been prevented from accompanying Mwangaza in her official county motorcade.
The anti-corruption agency urged the governor to avoid sideshows.
