Troubled Female Governor in a Nasty Clash With EACC, Commission Exposes Her For Lies and Theatrics

Kawira Mwangaza, the governor of Meru, and Murega Baicu, the first gentleman of the county, are allegedly utilizing deception to distract the attention of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

The anti-graft organization accused the two in a statement dated Saturday, October 29, of participating in theatrics and sideshows that diverged from the accusations made against them.

The Commission argued that the claims of nepotism, conflict of interest, and abuse of office were the only topics included in the letter's subject line. Thus, the commission took a step back from the personal matters that the pair brought up.

The agency claimed that theatrics were utilized by Governor Mwangaza and Baicu to politicize and denigrate the commission's work.

"The strange issues raised in the press conference were neither raised by the Commission nor were they part of the contents of its letter to the governor. Such are not matters that concern the commission,” read part of the EACC statement.

More so, the commission refuted claims that it had forbidden Baicu from entering the governor's official mansion while pleading with the public not to succumb to the lies by the duo in their quest for public sympathy.

EACC also distanced itself from claims that Baicu was denied the opportunity to accompany Mwangaza in her official county motorcade.

"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," added EACC in the statement.

The anti-graft agency urged the governor to refrain from sideshows while maintaining that their operations are governed by the rule of law. Governor Mwangaza refuted every accusation made against her. In its initial letter, EACC had accused Governor Kawira Mwangaza of a conflict of interest because she ordered county workers to manage Baite TV, which her husband, Baicu, owns. She was also accused of employing her two sisters one as the personal assistant and the other as the personal bodyguard.
