Kiambu Governor, Ferdinard Waititu, says he will sue his Kitui counterpart Charity Ngilu over incitement to violence.
Waititu is questioning why the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) failed to prefer charges against Ngilu even after she was cited as having ordered the burning of motor vehicles that were ferrying charcoal.
Waititu says he was taken aback by the NCIC handled Ngilu’s case. He says it was unfortunate that innocent businessmen fell victim of the governor’s utterances and as such, they must be compensated.
A lorry and a probox belonging to business people said to be from Kiambu county were set ablaze in Kitui County shortly after governor Ngilu announced that there will be no more charcoal burning and sand harvesting in her county sparking protests by a section of Kiambu residents.
Elsewhere, Nominated MP, David ole Sankok has called on Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter, and his Embakasi East counterpart, Babu Owino, to stop pointing fingers at President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto over the nullification of their elections by court.
Speaking in Narok, Sankok, however, advised the two to go back to the people and seek re-election.
Last week, Eldoret High Court Judge Kanyi Kimondo nullified the election of outspoken MP citing massive illegalities and irregularities during the election process.
Petitioner Bernard Kibor had accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of colluding with Keter to rig him out in the polls.
