Ex-CBK governor's case postponed after Judge recuses self

Appellate Judge, Agnes Murgor, has recused herself from hearing an appeal by former CBK Governor, Prof Njuguna Ndungu.

The Appellate Judge said that she once defended CBK and that this would lead to a conflict of interest.

The move by the Judge led to the postponement of the case.

Parties in the matter, who include Prof Njuguna Ndungu, Director of Public Prosecution and Ethics and Anti -Corruption Commission have been directed to pick hearing dates at the Registry.

Meanwhile, orders stopping the arrest and prosecution of Prof Ndungu have been extended.

In the case, Ndungu is challenging his arrest and prosecution over alleged irregular award of a 1.2 billion shillings security tender.

Ndungu is accused of rejecting the advice of internal and external legal teams.

He is also said to have ignored errors detected by his deputy over the award of the tender to UK-based IT company, Horsebridge Networks Systems (EA) Ltd.

The former CBK Governor moved to the Court of Appeal after High Court Judge, George Odunga, dismissed his claims that his impending criminal trial is an abuse of the court process.
