WHATTHEFACT? NO! Waiguru has not been arrested

Ann Waiguru has not been picked up by police

News doing the rounds on social media is that Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has been arrested by Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives following a raid at her Kitisuru home. This follows a story in the People Daily hinting that EACC have finalised investigations on a case surrounding a payment yet not made for settlement scheme land in Kirinyaga.

Tweets from the accounts of blogger Cyprian Nyakundi and another Simon Wachiuri indicated that Waiguru had been arrested.

We have since established that the Governor is still free, and that the EACC has not raided her home, and neither have they sent detectives to pick her up.

The story therefore fake news.
