DPP warns Waititu against opening parallel office


DPP Noordin Haji has warned Governors Ferdinand Waititu and Moses Lenolkulal against opening parallel offices.
Speaking on Friday during a Press briefing, the DPP faulted the Senate for going against court orders.
“The court ruled that the two governors should not be in office until cleared, but the Senate without vacating the said orders are saying otherwise. Kenyans don’t want these confusion,” said Haji
According to him, the judiciary is also at fault for allowing suspects in public office to defy orders and this goes against the Constitution.
He issued a warning to the Senate saying this should not me made the norm because it will also set a precedence for MPs.
Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki had last week ruled that Waititu and Lenolkulal can continue carrying out their duties as governors only that they cannot access the county offices.
Speaking in Limuru, Waititu on Thursday said he will open a new office and execute his duties.

The Senate ruling comes in the face of a yet to be determined appeal by Waititu challenging a High Court ruling on his bail terms that barred him from accessing the office.
