Waititu not yet done with Kidero

10 January 2014, 10:07

Nairobi - Former Embakasi MP, Ferdinand Waititu, moved to the Court of Appeal on Thursday in a fresh bid to unseat Evans Kidero as the Nairobi County governor.

Through his lawyer, Harrison Kinyanjui, Waititu, who lost the seat to Kidero in the March 4 polls, wants the court to reverse the dismissal of his election petition by the High Court in September last year.

Waititu was slapped with a KES 50 million legal bill to meet the costs of the case.

The new case will be heard on January 14, 2014, Daily Nation reports.

This comes days after the Nairobi Women Representative, Rachael Shebesh, ruled out an out-of-court settlement for her assault case against Kidero.

High Court Judge, Isaac Lenaola had directed the two to strike an agreement in the case within seven days or face charges.

It is alleged that Kidero slapped Shebesh at City Hall last year September.

The judge said if the two fail to agree, then he would continue with assault charges against Kidero, and charge Shebesh with creating disturbance as instructed by the Director of Public Prosecution, Keriako Tobiko.

Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Ferdinand Waititu as the chairman of Athi Water Services Board, a position he will hold for the next three years.

Waititu’s appointment is contained in Gazette Notice No. 115 dated 10th January 10, 2014 and signed by Environment Cabinet Secretary Judy Wakhungu.
