Court accepts Wambora’s impeachment appeal
04 June 2014, 13:33
Embu - An appeal filed by embattled Embu Governor, Martin Wambora against a section of the high court judgment that reinstated him will be heard on June 24, 2014.
On Tuesday, Court of Appeal judges Alnashir Visram, Martha Koome and Otieno Odek asked the litigants in the appeal to file their submissions and responses in 20 days.
In the appeal, Wambora said the High Court erred in failing to acquit him of the allegations leveled against him by the County Assembly despite reinstating him as governor.
He claimed that Keroguya High Court Judges Hedwig Ong’udi, Cecilia Githua and Boaz Olao misdirected themselves by ruling that the court erred by stating that the County Assembly and the Senate were 'the best judges' regarding the issue.
Wambora’s lawyer, Mansour Issa asked the court to consolidate the appeal with another filed by the Embu Speaker Justus Kariuki Mate and County Assembly Clerk Jim Kauma against another section of the Kerugoya judgment.
While seating in Nyeri, the Appellate Court directed that each of the parties will highlight their submissions in only 15 minutes during hearing.
