Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu says he has been holidaying during his time out of office.

Towards the end of July this year, the court barred Waititu from running Kiambu County until his corruption case in Sh588 million tender saga is heard and determined.

The embattled county CEO says being out of office has also helped him to focus on personal matters and family.

“Being out of office has helped me go to different places for holidays. I have been able to travel to many beautiful places to refresh my mind away from the normal political life. I had some time with myself and am ready to resume duties when the court allows,” said BabaYao.

“Politics make leaders forget about having time for themselves. That moment is very important to help anyone maintain a good state of mind with which they will work for the people,” he added.

Speaking on Sunday, Waititu confirmed his change of mind over the BBI and the Uhuru-Raila handshake. He said he is fully behind the initiatives citing the recent Mt Kenya leaders meeting as the reason for his current stance.

“I am now officially in support of the handshake and the BBI 100%. However if it will propose more positions in the executives, appointments should be done before elections to avoid political betrayals from the leaders,” he said.

Waititu also spoke about his court battles saying, “For me to have made it to be governor is because of God’s blessing. The same God who has brought me this far will be able to help me deal with my cases in court and soon they will be over.”
