Kiambu County Governor is a free man, for now, after he was released on a cash bail of Sh15 million in the Sh588 million graft case.
The governor was freed by Anti-Corruption Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi after he denied the charges.
His wife Susan Wangari was also freed on a Sh4 million bond.
This is after the two spent the night in cells after they were denied bail on Monday.
They surrendered to the EACC on Sunday after the DPP gave a warrant of arrest over graft in the county.
Kiambu Deputy Governor Dr James Nyoro is expected to take charge of county affairs as Waititu will not be allowed near the offices.
