Nairobi - Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu wants Nairobi Governor Evans
Kidero’s 2013 General Elections win quashed in the wake of bribery allegations
against Supreme Court Judge Philip Tunoi.
Waititu is seeking the orders following fresh allegations
that Tunoi was bribed to the tune of KES 200 million by Kidero to rule in his
favour in a petition by Waititu, The
Daily Nation Reported.
The now Kabete MP says that there is no way Kidero should be
allowed to continue in office with such allegations hanging over his head and
Speaking in Mombasa, Waititu
urged the police and Judiciary to conduct thorough investigations into the
matter and take appropriate action because “justice delayed is justice denied”.
Should the judge be found guilty,
Mr Waititu said, he should be arrested and charged in a court of law.

He is also quoted by Capital
News urging the relevant authorities to deliver the justice he deserves.
“I have all along told Nairobians
that something wrong happened in the ruling by Justice Tunoi,” said Mr Waititu.
“I am making a passionate appeal
to the Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, the National Intelligence Service, the
director of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the Ethics and
Anti-Corruption Commission to carry out thorough investigations on the issue.”
Kidero earlier told News24
that he had nothing to do with the allegations levelled against him by a
Geoffrey Kiplagat who claimed to have facilitated their meeting.
The petition by Waititu was
thrown out by Tunoi in early 2014 for lack of evidence.
