The Ethic and Anti-Corruption Commision as decided to go after the Meru County Governor Kawira Mwangaza After she went ahead to appointment of her husband Murega Baicu to county jobs.
In a letter addressed to the Meru governor, EACC Chief Executive, Twalib Mbarak pointed out that Baicu was appointed as youth service patron and ambassador for hustlers in the county.
Mbarak raised concerns about Baicu attending official county functions and delegating duties despite not being a public officer. In addition, Mwangaza is also accused of employing two of her sisters whereby one as a personal assistant and another as her security personnel.
Mbarak noted that the issue would create a conflict of interest, which contravenes the constitutional mandate on the appointment of a state officer.
The county boss is also accused of directing county employees to use their social media accounts to heap praises on her administration.
Another allegation leveled against her was employing her acting director of communication as well as her cleaners in county roles.
Mwangaza’s woes continue to mount days after she faced antagonism from Members of County Assembly (MCAs) who walked out on her inaugural address.
The MCAs snubbed her speech and walked out on grounds that she frustrated their efforts to access her office. Mwangaza however defended herself, claiming that she had visited 20 wards and was accompanied by the respective MCAs on each tour.
