Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki on Monday surrendered to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

He presented himself at Integrity house and is expected in court to respond to corruption charges.

The governor is required to give a statement on charges forwarded by the DPP on the irregular awarding of a Sh34.9 million tender.

"The project was procured, implemented and commissioned without an Environmental Impact Assessment and before being licensed by the National Environment Authority (NEMA)," a statement from the DPP read.

Governor Njuki's wife is also among the ten people scheduled to be charged with the improper solid waste management tender.
