Former Transport Cabinet Secretary Eng Michael Kamau Thursday availed himself in court following summons by Magistrate Lawrence Mogambi.
The court was however informed by his lawyer that the former CS could not get into the courtroom because he was unable to walk.
The magistrate had to walk to the parking lot at the Milimani law courts to confirm the presence of former transport Cabinet Secretary after it emerged that he was ill and could not make it to the courtroom.
The former CS was unable to attend court on Wednesday following the undisclosed illness which prompted the prosecution to apply for a warrant of arrest which the court declined to give and instead issued a summons.
The former CS is charged with willful failure to comply with government financial regulations will now come back to court on the 4th of March after undergoing treatment.
The case will be heard on 4th April.
Separately, former CMC director and Nairobi businessman Joel Kibe has been released on a 100,000 shillings cash bail after he denied killing a night guard through dangerous driving.

It is alleged that he committed the offence Tuesday this week at Runda Estate along UN Avenue. Kibe failed to appear in court on Wednesday as he was said to be on bed rest following injuries he sustained during the accident.
His lawyer Cliff Ombetta had on Wednesday provided the court with documents showing that his client had suffered two broken ribs and a doctor’s note indicating that he should rest.
