CS Kamau must show up in court, Judge rules

03 June 2015, 18:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau must appear in court to plead to charges of corruption and abuse of office Thursday if he is to avoid arrest, the High Court has ruled.

Kamau will be forced to appear in court after Judge Mumbi Ndung'u ruled that he must at-least plead and seek bond in the case in which he is accused of various offences by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC.

Justice Ngugi directed Kamau to plead to abuse of office charges as summoned and to make an application for release on bond if he did not want to be detained by the police as is the case currently.

The CS had moved to the High Court Tuesday, challenging the court summons, stating that the prosecution by the EACC and the office of the Director of Public Prosecution DPP was illegal.

" President Uhuru Kenyatta has no business directing the EACC to complete its investigations of those on the list named b the EACC within 60 days as it should carry out its functions independent of the Executive," an affidavit by the CS read.

However, the EACC and DPP argued that Kamau's argument was null and void because the EACC had already instituted proceedings against him before the president's announcement.

Kamau was thus ordered to appear in court just like six of his eight c-accused already have.

Kamau has been suspended from office in the meantime and will likely remain in that state until his case is determined to its full, especially with President Kenyatta saying Monday that the government would not relent on plans to punish those mentioned on the list of shame compiled by the EACC.

175 public officials were named on the list by the EACC though a good number have already been released due to lack of evidence and other reasons.
