Waititu to learn fate on parastatal appointment Wednesday

20 January 2014, 19:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Former Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu has failed with a bid to have him assume office as chairman of the Athi Water Services Board.

Waititu was barred from taking office last week by the High Court on matters integrity, after the court ruled that a case against him first be heard before he could assume office.

Judge Mumbi Ngugi had ruled last week that Waititu not take up office before a case where he is accused of land grabbing and hate speech be heard.

On Monday, Waititu returned to the court under an urgent plea, stating that the decision to stop him from assuming office was ill judged and malicious.

He argued that the charges drawn against him were contentious and that they were in no way strong enough to draw him out of office.

Through Lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui, he further argued that there was no way he could be denied entry into an office he had already inherited, seeing as he had already started working as chair of the board.

Despite the valiant efforts, Judge Ngugi directed that the case be heard Wednesday once Waititu serves a Mr Ben Riitho, who has filed the case against him and that all appear in court on the aforementioned date.

Waititu is the second parastatal appointee to be asked to step aside pending resolution of complaints over their integrity with NACADA boss John Mututho also suffering the same fate last year.
