Ruling on credibility of Joho's degree case postponed

15 October 2014, 13:33 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa High Court has postponed the delivery of a ruling in a case challenging the credibility of Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho's Business Administration degree.

Justice Edward Muriithi informed parties in the case that the court had already concluded preparing the ruling but the typed ruling had not been proofread to correct spelling errors.

“I share your disappointment but the ruling will be ready for the reading tomorrow at 10am," Muriithi said.

He said they had no a specific time frame to deliver the ruling unlike in the election petition where a delay would mean the court has no jurisdiction to announce the ruling.

The parties agreed that the ruling be read tomorrow, to give the court time to prepare.

Mombasa Deputy Governor Hazel Katana, through her lawyer Paul Buti, had filed a preliminary objection application to have the case struck out claiming that it was political.

Lawyer Buti had also questioned the constitutionality of the petition filed by the petitioner, Silas Otuke. He said the court had no jurisdiction to hear a case that had already been struck out.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga appointed Justice Christine Meoli, Martin Muya, and Edward Muriithi to look into the case and give a ruling.
