Waititu wants Kidero kicked out of office over bribery claims

26 January 2016, 20:58

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 office.

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.
