Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki has turned himself in to the Ethics and Anti Corruption offices today morning.

Njuki arrived at the EACC offices in Nairobi.

Director of Public Prosecution Nordin Haji had authorized the arrest of Njuki over the irregular purchase of a incinerator, an equipment that was supposed to be used in a solid waste management project.

According to the DPP, Njuki had paid Generation Electronic & Allied Company Limited, Ksh. 34,988,500 despite the fact that the same company imported it at Ksh. 3,897,945.
