Senate not swayed by court ruling barring governors summons

19 February 2014, 14:42 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The senate is not swayed by a court ruling stopping it from summoning governors, saying they will not waver on their mission to ensure accountability at county level.

The senate committee on finance had summoned nine governors before it to explain their spending patterns but the High court has stopped that process, albeit temporarily.

Lady justice Mumbi Ngugi stopped the senate committee hearings, saying that there was grounds to stop them until constitutional reference is sought.

In a rejoinder, the senate committee chair Billow Kerrow said that it was in order for the governors to seek clearance in court but insisted that there would be no relenting from the course.

" I am glad that the governors have sought legal advice on the matter since it was wrong for them to skip senate summons like they had already done, he said.

" That said, we will not relent on this matter because the kind of spending that has already been proven to be taking place cannot be allowed, he added.

He further insisted that there is no way that governors can and will be allowed to operate unchecked by the law.

" There must be checks and balances. Governors are public servants and so there must be accountability in whatever they do.

Governors summoned included Kinuthia Mbugua (Nakuru), Samuel Ole Tunai (Narok), Jack Ranguma (Kisumu), Julius Malombe (Kitui), Husein Dado (Tana River), Ken Lusaka (Bungoma), William Kabogo (Kiambu), Isaac Ruto (Bomet) and Ahmed Abdullahi Mohammed.

The summons followed the impeachment of Embu governor Martin Wambora following allegations of wastage of public funds.
