High Court halts graft charges on Garissa Governor

15 July 2015, 18:52 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has halted graft charges against Garissa Governor Nadhif Jama temporarily until a different case on the same matter is determined.

Justice Weldon Korir said Wednesday that Governor Jama had shown cause to have the charges dropped temporarily until a case seeking to bar the charges themselves is heard.

The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP is seeking to open corruption proceedings against him over the alleged leasing of County ambulances illegally.

Through his lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi, Jama argued that the charges were filed in bad faith as he does not sit in the county tender committee.

He also sad that it was unfair to charge him since he is also not a member of the County Procurement Committee.

Jama also insisted that the tender committee is governed by the Public Procurement and Disposal Regulation which insulates it from the Governor’s interference.

" Your honour, the tender committee members are well known and it is puzzling that the Governor be mentioned in the same light," he pleaded.

Abdulahi also said that the application demonstrated that Jama was not involved in corruption as recommended by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission EACC when it investigated the allegations.

Together with the seven officials, Jama is accused of leasing ambulances from the Emergency Plus Medical Services Ltd which is owned by the Kenya Red Cross Society.

The matter will be heard inter party next week Wednesday.
