Court rules Waititu unfit to hold public office

28 February 2014, 15:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High court has ruled that former Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu is unfit to hold public office due to pending integrity issues.

This follows an application by a Nairobi businessman to stop Waititu's appointment as the chairman of the Athi Water Services Board.

Mr Benson Kabui Riitho had filed the application last month, seeking to stop Waititu's appointment to the position by the government due to what he described as lack of constitutional threshold for the appointment.

Judge Mumbi Ngugi, who had filed the case as urgent said in her ruling that Waititu had been proven to be of low integrity and thus lacked the suitability to hold public office.

" The complainant has proven beyond doubt that the respondent is not fit to hold public office as provided by the constitution, she said.

Waititu has had several run-in's with the law, which were noted by Mt Riitho in his submission.

He especially noted an incident in which Waititu is caught on camera inciting the removal of a certain community from a village in the Embakasi area whilst he was Embakasi MP.

Waititu is still engaged in a fight to remove Nairobi governor Evans Kidero from his seat, following complaints from him about the March 2013 elections in which Kidero prevailed.

It is expected that the case will be heard in Early March.
