Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro will now run Kiambu County government till Waititu’s case is determined.
In his ruling, Nairobi Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi concurred with the precedent set by Justice Mumbi Ngugi, who ruled that county boss charged with economic crimes step aside until their cases are heard and determined.
In addition, Mr. Waititu has been ordered to deposit his travel documents with the court. But the governor has been ordered freed on Sh15 million cash bail.
Anti-Corruption Court Justice Lawrence Mugambi ruled that barring the county staff and their boss from accessing their places of work will ensure the integrity of the trial as well as the public interest.
