Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu’s car is under investigations over an alleged accident which left a security supervisor with a broken limb.
According to reports, the car belonging to the outspoken governor allegedly knocked the security supervisor after Waititu’s driver got into an argument with him.
Governor Waititu was attending a funeral at All Saints Cathedral on Valley Road before an disagreement arose between the church’s security supervisor, John Mwiga and his driver.
According to a source, the governor was among the dignitaries attending Murang’a Senator Irungu Kangata’s mother’s memorial.
It is noted that upon his arrival at the church, the governor wanted to be cleared hurriedly from the entrance and didn’t want to observe the parking rules.
An action that led to Waititu’s drivers getting into a commotion with the security guards at the gate.
Upon hearing the commotion, Mwiga went to check what the issue is.
“I had met them at the gate when they wanted to get in without being checked, but I insisted on inspecting the vehicles. They were not happy to see me there, especially when I pointed out that they were blocking other cars. They insulted me and that is when the driver ran me over,” Mwiga told Nairobian.
He was later rushed to Shalom Hospital where it was confirmed that he had sustained a fracture on his left foot.
According to a recording from the church’s CCTV, Waititu is seen dismissing claims that his driver had hit Mwiga, noting that only his shoe was scratched.
“What they did was horrible, not to mention they could have killed me? Where will poor people like me get justice if we are treated like this?” He added.
The matter was later reported to the police and was booked under reference number OB 08/27/2/2019.
Despite the driver stating that he will take the vehicle for inspection at the police station, a police privy to the case revealed that the car was never taken in for inspection.
The police noted: “It is usually recommended for vehicles with such cases to be inspected immediately lest it is interfered with. Taking more than two weeks means something else.”
Following the accident, Mwiga has now been confined to using crutches and has not been able to report to work since that incident.
He is now seeking justice.
According to the Nairobian, the vehicle (KCJ 665X) has been registered to Governor Waititu by the National Transport and Safety Authority.
