Kiambu County Governor Hon. Kimani Wamatangi, alongside his CEC Salome Wainaina, has now landed in hot water following the explosion of claims and reports that Wamatangi is at the center of a Kshs 4.3 billion extortion case where Tatu City has come forward to cry foul.

According to a report by Mwango Capital, a trusted financial data agency, Hon. Kimani Wamatangi has been using his powers as the boss of Kiambu to block development within Tatu City premises by virtue of being the one who can authorize building approvals.

This has blocked both local and international investments in Tatu City and made it impossible for at least 4,500 jobs that would have accommodated Kenyans who are largely jobless.

“Tatu City has accused Kiambu County Governor Kimani Wamatangi and CEC Member Salome Wainaina of extorting KES 4.3B, holding up approvals, and demanding 40+ acres of land. They say this has cost the country KES 16B in investment and 4,500 in new jobs,” Mwango Capital wrote on X on July 10.

Additionally, it has emerged that the Kiambu boss demanded to be given at least 40 acres or more of land in order for him to hand over approvals for Tatu City developers, who intend to expand their base to align with Vision 2030.

The issue of the Kiambu governor demanding favors in order to approve Tatu City developers to continue with their work isn’t new in Kenya, and specifically in the political arenas where governors such as Johnson Sakaja, among others, have been accused of accumulating flats and collecting bribes to give approvals for the construction of residential and commercial buildings in various places.

At the time of writing this story, Kimani Wamatangi and his administration had not responded to the reports that have become sensational on social media for the better part of Wednesday evening.
