Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu is once again making headlines for the wrong reason after a car belonging to him allegedly hit a parking attendant, crushing his left foot.

John Mwinga, who serves as a parking attendant at All Saints Cathedral narrated that on the fateful day on February 28, Waititu was attending a meeting at the Church to make arrangements for the funeral of Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata’s mother.

Reports indicate that a brief commotion ensued at the gate after Waititu’s car declined to observe parking rules, demanding to be cleared in a hurry without going through the routine security checks.

“I had met them at the gate when they wanted to get in without being checked, but I insisted on inspecting the vehicles,” Mwinga recalled.

Mwinga revealed that the governor’s bodyguards were not amused after he pointed out that they were blocking other cars and roughed him up, hurling insults at him.

According to Mwinga, the horrific encounter could have left him dead as the driver sped off, running over his foot.

“They insulted me and that is when the driver ran me over,” Mwinga revealed.

He was rushed to Shalom hospital where it was confirmed that he had sustained a fracture on his left foot.

Waititu dismisses the claims

CCTV footage captured on the fateful day shows Waititu dismissing Mwinga’s allegations, claiming that his shoe was just ‘scratched’ and that his foot was barely touched.

The governor never bothered to follow up on the case with who now uses crutches, left to his own devices.

“Where will poor people like me get justice if we are treated like this?… I’ve been confined to the house since the accident. It is painful since I can’t go to work. I hope justice will be done because my family depends on me,” he lamented.
