Court stops probe of 13 reps for al­leged mis­con­duct dur­ing Kidero im­peach­ment

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

A judge has blocked the anti-graft com­mis­sion from in­ves­ti­gat­ing the con­duct of 13 Nairobi MCAs.

High Court judge Rose­lyne Aburili gave tem­po­rary or­ders stop­ping both the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and sum­monses, pend­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion of a ju­di­cial re­view case they filed. She di­rected the mat­ter be men­tioned on De­cem­ber 15.

Her or­der arose out of an ap­pli­ca­tion filed by the 13 chal­leng­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tions and pos­si­ble pros­e­cu­tion over their con­duct dur­ing the tabling of a mo­tion to im­peach Gov­er­nor Evans Kidero on Septem­ber 29. They sued the EACC.

The MCAs are Alex­ina Moody, Cather­ine Opiyo, Daniel Oria, El­iz­a­beth Manyala, Florence Atembo, Gari Mau­rice, Joyce Bocha, Ken Ngondi, Peter Imwa­tok, Peter Ow­era, Rose Kula, Tabitha Ndi­gi­rigi and Wil­fred Odallo.
