Waititu not yet done with Kidero
05 February 2016, 11:36
Nairobi - One man will be keenly following the announcement of the findings of a tribunal probing Supreme Court judge Philip Tunoi's bribery allegations is Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu.
Waititu was the loser of the petition which Tunoi is alleged to have received a bribe of KES 200 million bribe from Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to rule in his favour.
Come Friday afternoon, Waititu could as well be smiling.
Even though he has now moved on to a different place, Waititu says that he will be keenly looking at what comes out of the case and take appropriate action once it comes up.
" I'm keenly following the proceedings. If things change then I will be talking to my team to see what next," he said.
" If they say that there was bribery then both Tunoi and Kidero should resign and the Governor's seat declared vacant," he added.

Waititu says that in the case of bribery being found, it will be prudent to ensure that all involved are punished and all those aggrieved rewarded in return.
" The fact is that if there is any evidence that there was bribery then I deserve to be Nairobi Governor. That is the fact of it all," he added.
Tunoi threw out Waititu's petition in 2014 claiming he had no grounds to have Kidero's election overturned.
The allegations of bribery are being probed by a Special Judiciary Committee which is looking at the merits of claims by a Geoffrey Kiplagat who claimed to have facilitated the exchange of the money.
