EACC Claims Governor Kawira & Spouce are Playing Tricks in Diverting Attention

According to a statement issued on Friday, October 28, the anti-graft body accused the duo of engaging in fake tricks and sideshows deviating from accusations leveled against them by the Meru Members of the county Assembly.

EACC insisted that their subject letter only focussed on allegations of conflict of interest, nepotism, and abuse of office. The commission thus distanced itself from personal issues raised by the duo.

The agency accused Governor Mwangaza and Baicu of using theatrics to politicize and trivialize the commission’s works.

This comes after Meru First Gentleman Baicu Mwangaza claimed that he was facing gender-based violence since he was burred to accessing their Meru official residence and also burred from riding along with Mwangaza in her official county motorcade.

However, the Anti-Graft body while appealing to the public denied allegations that it blocked Baicu from accessing the governor’s official residence.

“The commission takes great exception to the strange averments ensuing from the press conference alluding to alleged directives regarding the use, or otherwise, of the governor’s official vehicles and residence by her spouse,” EACC stated.

The EACC further maintained that their actions were guided by the rule of law while urging the governor to avoid sideshows. 

Notably, the Anti-graft Agency also responded to Mr.Baichu, who denounced harassment by government officials while calling for fast intervention. 

Governor Mwangaza on the other hand refuted every accusation made against her.

The first-time governor who was the former Meru county women's representative was accused of a conflict of interest for directing county employees to run operations at Baite TV, owned by her husband, Murega Baicu.
She was also accused of nepotism for appointing her two sisters as personal assistants and security personnel.
