Kinyua and former Attorney General Amos Wako were summoned in April to testify in the suit where former senior government officials and businessmen are facing charges related to the multi-billion-shilling security tenders that the State has termed irregular.
Trial magistrate Felix Kombo directed the two to appear in June so that the case may proceed.
Wako was Attorney General while Kinyua was Finance Permanent Secretary at the Treasury when the contracts were signed.
The court heard that the contracts received Cabinet approvals, including from the then AG, who is now Busia Senator.
A previous case fell apart in 2005 because of a lack of evidence.
A total of 18 Anglo-leasing contracts were signed between the government and the supplier companies.
