Former Kiambu county Roads executive has told an anti-corruption court that there was no budgetary allocation for upgrading roads in former governor Ferdinand Waititu Sh588 million graft case. John Gathigi Mugwe was testifying against the former governor, his wife Susan Wangari and 11 others in the trial over the irregular award of roads tender.

According to Mugwe, it was not proper for the former county boss to open the tendering of the roads due to lack of a budget. Additionally, Mugwe said the cabinet paper which proposed improvement of county gravel roads was never tabled for discussion yet the improvements were done.
Mugwe further denied claims by the defense team that his testimony is a way of seeking vengeance against the former county chief after he was relieved from his duties in 2018.
