Besieged Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu appears to be running deeper into trouble each passing day.
How Waititu was kicked out of Uhuru’s function in Mombasa [VIDEO]
Baba yao in more trouble
A video has surfaced of Waititu being kicked out of the presidential dais during the Mashujaa Day celebrations held at Mama Ngina Waterfront in Mombasa.
The video was corroborated by reporters who covered the event and observed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handlers ask the Kiambu Governor to leave the dais.
Waititu had made a quiet entry into the Mama Ngina Waterfront and taken a strategic seat where his neighbors would be VIP guests including judges, fellow governors and Cabinet Secretaries.
The President’s handlers were reportedly concerned at the optics which could have possibly seen the Governor share a seat with a judge or with the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji – who was also present at the celebrations.
Upon being approached, Waititu did not object but rose up from his seat, appeared to be greeting the guests present before feigning a phone call and walking out of the event altogether.
The humiliating incident happened just days after a similar one when the embattled county boss was blocked from mingling with President Kenyatta during the launch of the SGR phase two.
The President’s bodyguard physically blocked Waititu from meeting the President. Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro, who is acting as the Governor, was also present and was accorded full respect, including addressing those who had attended the launch.
The controversial Governor is facing corruption charges that have seen him barred from performing the roles of a county boss until the case is concluded.
Waititu had recently requested to return the money that was lost in the corruption case facing him, in exchange for the charges to be dropped. DPP Haji rejected the plea.
