Cofek will seek to be enjoined in Kidero, Khalwale case
02 July 2015, 09:07
Nairobi - The Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek) has said it will seek to be enjoined in a lawsuit filed by Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero against Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale.
Kidero sued Khalwale on Wednesday after the Kakamega Senator refused to apologize over statements he made linking Kidero to the scandal at Mumias Sugar Company.
Cofek said Kidero should be prepared for a tough court battle after he sued Khalwale for defamation.
“We will seek to be enjoined in the Kidero vs Khalwale legal tussle to defend consumer and public interest.
“Mumias made Kidero. To have it brought down, he literally killed the livelihoods of cane farmers. His decision to sue Khalwale is a wrong move,” Cofek said.
Khalwale confirmed that indeed Cofek was supporting him, together with Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior and lawyer Ahmed Nassir.
He said that he was patiently waiting for Kidero to serve him with court documents, adding that he was determined to fight for sugar cane farmers.
“The war against graft is inevitable. I am ready as usual. My poor farmers want their billions back,” Khalwale said.
