Munya on his own in plight to save Meru seat

14 April 2014, 15:05 William Korir

Nairobi - The council of governors has been denied entry into a case in which Meru governor Peter Munya is seeking to have his removal from office revoked.

Supreme Court judges declined to allow the Council of Governors be enjoined in the Meru Governor's case.


The full bench of judges including the Chief Justice and his deputy dismissed the County bosses’ application to be enjoined to the case as friends of the court and said their coming on board would not add weight to the case.


“Taking into consideration legal expertise and public interest, a friend of the court is neutral in reaching at an informed decision, the application cannot be admitted and is therefore dismissed,” Justice Smokin Wanjala said.


The governor’s opponent Dickson Kithinji strongly opposed the Council of Governors’ bid to be enjoined in the suit and argued that they would not add value to the case as far as devolution is concerned.


“This case has nothing at all not even remote with devolution, Court is well equipped to determine standard of proof, there is nothing unique to get aid, the Council of Governors is mantling with waters,” lawyer Ntokulou Muthomi for Kithinji said.


Mr Munya through lawyer Tom Ojienda was not opposed to the Council of Governors’ application while the IEBC also listed as a respondent in the suit did not state its position but faulted the appellate Court ruling in support of the embattled governor.


On Thursday, the Council of Governors yesterday appealed to the Supreme Court judges to be allowed to join Meru Governor Peter Munya’s appeal case.
