Relief as court withdraws arrest warrant against Waibara

29 May 2014, 11:28 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The immediate former Gatundu North MP, Clement Kung’u Waibara breathed a sigh of relief after a Nyeri court lifted a warrant of arrest issued against him.

Principal Magistrate Joann Wabliyanga withdrew the warrant after the Waibara availed himself in court but forfeited a cash bail of KES 30 000 that he had deposited.

Waibara appeared in court Tuesday at 9.45am only to find that the warrant of arrest had already been issued against him as he was expected in court at 9.00am.

Waibara explained to the court why he was late stating that he was held up in a traffic jam at Sagana area along Nyeri-Nairobi road following a minor road accident.

While addressing court in person, Waibara further told the court that his lawyer, Polycarp Ongwae was sick and could not make it to court.

He was scheduled to present his defence Wednesday but his case was adjourned to June 17, 2014 while he was released on a cash bail of KES 50 000.

Waibara is faced with charges of conspiring to kill a man who filed a petition challenging his 2007 parliamentary election.

It is alleged that he conspired with a former nominated councilor to kill Bernard Chege Mburu on diverse dates between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011 within Thika Township.
