Governors confident on Supreme court ruling

18 February 2014, 12:35 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Council of Governors  filed an advisory opinion suit with regards to the summons by the senate at the Supreme Court yesterday.

Some of the issues to be decided by the highest Court in the land include the standard of proof for the Senate’s special committee investigation, proceedings and determination of issues, the removal of a governor from office by the virtue of the principle collective responsibility over acts or omissions of members of county executive committee, the county secretary, and other public officers in the County Public Service.

The issue on whether an accounting officer of the County government is accountable to the Senate on its financial management and whether the Senate can summon a governor to personally appear before it to answer questions on county public financial management is also set to decided on.

Governors council chair Isaac Ruto said that the issues before hand made the rulings by the senate unsustainable, thus the need for Supreme court interpretation.

" We need the best interpretation of the law and we believe we will find it at the Supreme Court, he said.

Earlier his Nairobi counterpart Evans Kidero had thrown his weight behind the Supreme Court hearing to determine the legality of the summons and the impeachment of Embu governor Martin Wambora.

" It is vital that we get a sober and mindful interpretation of the law and to ensure that we have fairness in this process and that it is done in good faith.

The senate last week rubber-stamped the impeachment of Wambora despite a court ruling barring it from going on with the process.
