Wavinya Ndeti Responds after being Reported to ICC

Finally Wavinya Ndeti speaks up


Mrs Ndeti told the police that there was a ploy by Mr. Mutua to burn offices in the county in order to get rid of evidence implicating him.

"It is common knowledge now that out of various reports from the Office of the Auditor General and active investigations by EACC...there has been wanton looting of public resources in Machakos County government.

“Information was passed to me yesterday there is a pot to burn down sections of the Government headquarters between the 5 and 8 of July 2017 so as to destroy financial and procurement records as part of a wider scheme to cover up the said economic crimes,” Ndeti's letter read in part.

However, in a new turn of events, Mutua wrote a counter letter to the Inspector General and copied it to the Chief Prosecutor at the ICC, Fatou Bensouda,  to investigate Mrs Ndeti over the letter which had brought to light an alleged attempted arson attack.

"The sensational claim of arson in Mrs. Ndeti's letter can only, therefore, be construed to mean that there could be such a political and criminal plan by her or supporters to frustrate my government by burning the said buildings to justify the contents of the malicious letter so as to gain political mileage. This will be plain terrorism," Mutua 's letter read.

Mutua's move raised a lot of questions with a section of the public inquiring why the former Kathiani MP was reported to the Hague-based court.

Speaking exclusively to Plive.co.ke, Mrs. Ndeti rubbished the Governor's claims noting that the matter was being handled by the police.

The former Chama Cha Uzalendo (CCU) leader noted that: "I will not engage in propaganda. I reported the matter to the police and they are investigating it".

"I do not want to talk about people let us just focus on this great County of Machakos. Mutua can report to the ICC if he wants. I reported the concern and that is that," Mrs. Ndeti mentioned.
