Court: Wambora not reinstated as Embu governor

26 February 2014, 09:14 Nechesa Chemoi

Kerugoya - Three judges hearing Martin Wambora’s impeachment case yesterday clarified that they had not reinstated him as the Embu governor.

Sitting at the High Court in Kerugoya, the three judges, Cecilia Githua, Hedwig Ong’undu and Boaz Olao described media reports and statements from a section of politicians saying Wambra was back in office as misleading.

“This Court wishes to take this early opportunity to clarify that at no time has it reinstated Mr. Martin Wambora back to office,” said the judges.

According to the judges, they only stopped the gazzettement of Wambora’s impeachment by the senate saying that did not mean that he had been reinstated.

They said the court is yet to make a determination on whether Wambora should remain in office and continue to discharge his mandate as the county’s governor pending the hearing and determination of the petition.

“It would therefore be erroneous for any of the parties in this matter to give any other interpretation to the suspension of the gazzettement of Wambora’s impeachment,” the judges said.

They said their action did not amount to staying Senate’s decision or reinstating Wambora back to office.

“The Gazzette Notice was merely notifying the public about the decision of the Senate. The issue of reinstating Wambora is a matter that is still pending in the Court,” the judges said.

The judges cautioned parties involved in the case against making comments that are prejudicial to the court’s proceedings.

They also advised the parties to desist from giving their own interpretations to orders issued by the court.

The court will issue its ruling on the case on March 10.
