New petition launched against Saitoti widow

Nairobi - A couple claiming Prof George Saitoti’s adopted son to be theirs have moved to court seeking orders to reinstate a case against the widow of the late minister.
The couple, Mr Sebastian Ngunju and his wife, Elizabeth Maina, want the High Court to set aside a consent which terminated a private prosecution case against Mrs Margaret Saitoti.
They allege they were not consulted by their former advocate John Hari Gakinya before signing the consent between the Director of Public Prosecutions and the lawyer for Mrs Saitoti in July 2013.
The DPP told Justice Isaac Lenaola that there was nothing to reinstate since the case was terminated with the consent of all the parties.
The widow also asked the court to dismiss the application to reinstate the case.
Justice Lenaola is set to give a ruling on May 23.
