Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and his wife Susan Wangari on Monday denied charges in a Sh588 million illegal road tender case.
They appeared before magistrate Lawrence Mugambi alongside nine other suspects at a Milimani law court.
The Sh588 million tender was for upgrading of gravel roads to bituminous service.
EACC boss Twalib Mbarak said after submitting an investigation report to Haji, he gave consent to charge Waititu alongside 11 other suspects with conflict of interest, dealing with suspect property, abuse of office and willful failure to comply with the law relating to procurement.
Tom Ojienda, Nelson Havi, Collins Kiprono, Kipchumba Karori, Edwin Chege and James Njoroge form Waititu’s defence team.
Ojienda said the road in question is 60 per cent complete.
