Murang’a county governor Mwangi Wa Iria has dismissed allegations that he could be in the list of corrupt governors that the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) intends to lock out of the elections.
The governor has said that EACC does not have a case against him, and on the contrary, he is the one who has filed several cases against the commission.
While reacting to report published on a local daily, the governor said the EACC once tried to accuse him of making false declaration during the last election petition which they lost after justice Mumbi Ngugi ruled in his favor.
“In her judgment Mumbi said that the accusations were ill driven and malicious motives,” said Wa Iria.
He further said detectives from the Wabukala led commission raided his residence in Gatanga shortly after his impeachment failed in a move which he believes was politically instigated and fabricated.
The detectives claimed they were looking for documents of alleged corrupt deals in his government and seeking evidence on embezzlement of funds in the county.
“The detectives raided my home, harassed my family yet they did not have a warrant search and this makes me believe that this was planned by my political enemies,” he remarked.
That matter, he said, is still in court and the commission does not have any case against him neither does he have any integrity questions.
