High Court Judge Weldon Korir has declined to stop the trial of former Information Permanent Secretary Bitange Ndemo in connection with the Malili Ranch trial.
In his ruling, Judge Korir said it is unlikely that the case at the magistrate court will begin before he hears and delivers his ruling on a petition by Ndemo challenging his prosecution.
The judge while declining stated that the trial at the magistrate’s court will not begin until he has heard and delivered a ruling.
In the case, Ndemo claims that his prosecution is ill-founded since he has accessed documents, which confirm that his trial is malicious. The hearing is set for 21st June this year.
Meanwhile Kiambu senator Kimani Wamatangi is challenging the formula used by the National Government in the allocation of revenue to Counties.

The senator says the formula is discriminatory. He wants the national government barred from disbursing any revenue to counties until the case is heard and determined.
