High Court stops Senate summon of 9 governors

19 February 2014, 11:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has stopped the summoning of 9 governors by the senate and suspended the probe into their alleged suspect spending.

Judge Mumbi Ngugi granted the 9 governors the reprieve, saying that further interpretation of the constitution must be sought first before the 9 can be summoned.

She argued that it would be unfair to the governors to be summoned and appear before the senate committee on finance before it was determined that it was constitutionally okay.

" It is important that there is correct interpretation of the law and thus would be unfair to subject the governors to the hearing without clear guidelines on the matter, she said in her ruling.

The nine include Bungoma’s Kenneth Lusaka, Bomet’s Isaac Ruto, Kiambu’s William Kabogo, Kitui’s Julius Malombe, Kisumu’s Jack Ranguma, Nakuru’s Kinuthia Mbugua, Narok’s Samuel Tanui, Tana River’s Hussein Dado and Wajir’s Ahmed Abdullahi.

The petition was filed by a lobby group called the International Legal Consultancy Group and the Governors Council, who sought the orders stopping the proceedings.
