Court declines to stop appointment of Kiambu Deputy Governor

Justice James Makau has declined to grant orders barring Kiambu Governor James Nyoro from appointing his deputy governor.

He finds that the applicant Ferdinand Waititu failed to demonstrate a prima facie case.

Justice Makau further notes that the prayers sought by the applicant are totally different from pleadings made in court.

This is after Ferdinand Waititu made an application stopping Kiambu governor James Nyoro from appointing his deputy pending the hearing and determination of his application.

The former Governor is also challenging his impeachment and the process the county assembly of Kiambu and the senate followed in his ouster.

Waititu was impeached in December by the assembly and the same endorsed by the Senate last week.

The state has objected the application claiming Waititu impeachment was done by two constitutionally recognized bodies and due process was followed even in the swearing-in of governor Nyoro.
