Embattled former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu always has unending woes. The former governor suffered a blow after the court failed to uphold a ruling where he wanted to stop incumbent governor James Nyoro from appointing his deputy.
Monday saw Mr. Waititu move to court with his lawyer in a bid to stop James Nyoro from appointing a deputy governor.
The case comes amid a pending hearing with Waititu determined to stop his impeachment.
New Kiambu governor took his oath on Friday, January 31, which was presided by Justice John Onyiego with Kiambu’s chief magistrate Patricia Gichohi present.
Waititu was enraged with Nyoro’s appointment terming it unconstitutional, despite the senate having upheld his impeachment.
Through his lawyer Kibe Mungai, the county boss filed preliminary against the jurisdiction. Nyoro went further to challenge hearing of the case from Nairobi as previously expected.
Hearing of the filed petition moved to Kiambu High Court instead.
On the other hand, James Makau, the High Court Judge in charge of the hearing, threw the case to the wind saying deputy governor appointment is a process and not a single act.
Makau further stated the proceedings couldn’t become a hearing unless the respondents have the opportunity to file their grievances.
“No order can be issued at this stage. Waititu has not demonstrated what prejudice he will suffer,” stated the judge.
Waititu filed the petition on Thursday, January 30, to stop swearing-in of Nyoro but his application didn’t hold enough water, hence thrown out.
Members of the Kiambu county assembly impeached Waititu in November 2019. Last week, the senate saw the end of his tenure as a governor.
So far, Waititu is the first governor to be impeached by the senate. Some of the reasons that led to his impeachment include gross violation of the constitution, abuse of office among many other charges.
