Published

on

BY KEVIN KOECH

Former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu failed to appear in court for the third time forcing the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji to consider cancelling his bail terms.

Waititu was to appear in court on Monday the 26th of October 2020 to answer charges in his ksh 588 million graft case.

However, he did not show up.

According to his lawyers, the former Kiambu governor is sick in the high dependency unit (HDU) in hospital.

“My client has been unwell. He went for check up on the 24th of october and was referred to the high dependency unit for admission at a hospital,” Waititu’s lawyer said.

The prosecution accused Waititu of evading trial seeing this is the third time he has missed court.

It also requested Waititu’s lawyers to provide his medical records to the court

Consequently, the DPP also requested a team of three government doctors to examine Waititu and present the medical report.

“That a team of three appointed by kenya medical practitioners and dentist board do examine the metal assessment and be filed in court and the purpose is for the court to assess the mental status and for the dpp to make further applications.”

However, Waititu’s lawyers claimed that this would be an invasion of Waititu’s right to privacy.

State lawyers also sought to have the case go on without the former Kiambu governor.

They further explained that even though Waititu is hospitalized, he should know when he can resume with his life.

COVID-19: Mombasa County Assembly closed as MCAs, staff tested positive 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Mombasa City has closed its County Assembly after three MCAS tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Deputy speaker, Fadhili Makarani, who confirmed the news, the assembly would go for a 14-day recess.

Furthermore, they could extend that recess to 21 days if the surging cases kept going up.

“We have three MCAs and a few staff who tested positive and that is why we decided to extend the recess because the whole place needs to be fumigated. People have been given two weeks to go for self-isolation.” Makarani said.

Makarani confirmed that other employees in the assembly would undergo mandatory testing.

This is after allegations from staff that the assembly had stopped testing due to the process being ‘costly’.

“I am not in denial that our people are at risk but we need to test them and if the situation gets worse, we will close the assembly.” Makarani said. If the test kits will be available, the testing process among all staff will end this week.”

Institutions which request COVID-19 tests pay Ksh 2,000 for each test.

However, mass testing or tests from contact tracing are often free of charge.

Mombasa becomes the third county to suspend its County Assembly due to COVID-19 infections among MCAS.

Furthermore, Uasin Gishu recently lost Huruma East MCA to the virus, which resulted in the suspension as cases rose.

Indeed, rural counties are seeing sharp rise in COVID cases in the second wave.
