Kamba unity: Kalonzo accompanies Ngilu to court

19 June 2015, 12:55 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - There was an interesting moment at the High Court after CORD principal Kalonzo Musyoka accompanied rival and Jubilee Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu to court to contest her abuse of office charges.

Ngilu was in the dock as she and seven others faced charges for obstructing justice by denying investigators access to her office whilst investigating the KES 8 billion Karen land grabbing incident.

She denied the claims and was released on a KES 1 million cash bail or KES 3 million bond.

Kalonzo's appearance though was the surprise factor, a show of unity with Ngilu despite the two not seeing eye to eye in the last three years.

MPs Dan Kilonzo and Cecily Mbarire were also at the court hearing.

Ngilu refused to take a similar plea to seven of her co-accused, who are charged with trying to illegally change ownership of the 138 acre piece of land.

She was granted her plea.

Ngilu is the second CS to appear before the court to face charges in the highly publicized list of shame. She was suspended form office to pave way for investigations over alleged corruption.

Transport CS Michael Kamau was the first to be charged with abuse of office and failure to comply with procurement rules over the construction of the Kamukuywa-Kaptama-Kapsokwony-Kimilili road, which led to the loss of millions of shillings. He denied the charges.

The other Cabinet secretaries who were accused of corruption and remain suspended are Felix Koskei (Agriculture), Kazungu Kambi (Labour), Davis Chirchir (Energy).

Kalonzo said that he accompanied Ngilu to show support to an old friend.

" I am here to support an old friend," he said briefly before the hearing.
