AG Muigai blocks LSK inquest into Anglo Leasing payments

28 June 2014, 16:15 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Attorney General Githu Muigai has obtained orders barring the Law Society of Kenya from contemplating any action against him over how he handled the Anglo leasing cases abroad.


Mr Muigai had moved to court on Thursday following LSK recent demands that he needs to be removed from office with regards to how he spearheaded the handling of Anglo leasing cases  that saw Kenya lose the case and pay Sh 1.4 billion to Universal Satspace Limited.


And High Court judge Weldon Korir granted him the orders to bar LSK from making any attempts to have him removed from office or be forced to face any action.


“A temporary order is hereby issued to restrain LSK or its Council from proceeding further with any contemplated action against Mr Muigai concerning the performance of his duties as the Attorney general regarding High Court of Justice Queen’s Bench Division case,” said Justice Korir.


The judge further ordered that both LSK and the Council of LSK are barred from holding any meeting to discuss Mr Githu’s conduct in relation to the said case.


While issuing the order, the judge however stated clearly that they do not affect another case filed by LSK against the Treasury Cabinet Secretary and Mr Muigai faulting the manner in which the Kenyan government handled the Anglo leasing cases abroad and the litigation payments incurred.


In the other case LSK wants Mr Githu to be removed from office.


“For the avoidance of doubt, this order does not affect the other case and the proceedings started by LSK seeking his removal from office,” said Mr Justice Korir.


The judge also directed that Mr Githu’s case file should be placed before Chief justice Willy Mutunga to constitute a panel of an uneven number of judges to hear his case.


While Mr Githu was asked to give copies of his case documents to LSK and its Council within three days as of June 26.


LSK’s Eric Mutua and Apollo Mboya have faulted Mr Muigai of giving an unconstitutional, illegal and fraudulent, unprofessional legal opinion to the government that there was no other option available to the government other than pay.


The Ag’s case will be mentioned on July 9.
