Former MP arrested over arrears

29 April 2013, 20:57 Dareel Eric

Immediate former Shinyalu MP Justus Kizito was arraigned in Vihiga Law Courts on Sunday for allegedly mistreating his workers at St. Aquinas Teachers’ Training College by not paying them.

Kizito was arrested in Kakamega, after a warrant of arrest had been issued last year November by the Senior Resident Magistrate in Vihiga Susan Mwangi, for failing to appear in court to answer the charges that had been levelled against him.

On Sunday, he only appeared before the court for the charges of having not paid his 13 workers at the TTC for a period of 8 months last year to be read to him.

Out of the 13 workers, eight of them are employed on permanent basis while five had been employed on temporary basis in the institution.  

Winnie Otieno, the County Labour Officer, said that it had been difficult to arrest the former MP due to his stature in the government.

He was arrested after he had appeared in a Kakamega court for the case involving his vehicle that was razed by angry youths during the election campaigns.

“It took six police officers to tussle with the former MP before he was subdued and rushed to the Vihiga law courts,” Otieno said.

He lost the last election after he contested to retain his seat on a United Democratic Forum (UDF) party ticket.     

Kizito will appear before the court on May 14 this year for the hearing of the case.
