The corruption trial of ex-Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu, who is accused of awarding a Sh588 million road deal improperly, has been postponed.
Milimani Chief Magistrate approved Waititu’s request for a postponement, according to the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution.
The Office of the District Attorney has announced that Faith Mwila and Linda Mwamburi, who will be leading the prosecution, have two witnesses ready to testify.
The new date for this case’s hearing is October 14, 2022.
To be clear, this is not the first time this issue has been put off.
Waititu informed the court in August of 2020 that he had tested positive for Covid-19, which caused the case to be postponed.
