Former Transport CS Michael Kamau fails to take plea yet again
Former Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau wants the anti-corruption court to stay the criminal proceedings until the Supreme Court hears and determines his appeal.
The embattled engineer is fighting to have the case pending before anti corruption court quashed.
Trial magistrate Douglas Ogot was told that Kamau filed an appeal before the Supreme Court and that the application was certified as urgent.
“It is our prayer that this plea be differed to another date pending hearing and determination of the application before the Supreme Court,” submitted lawyer James Orengo.
However the prosecution, through lawyer Ashimosi Shitabasi, told the court that the Court of Appeal dismissed Kamau’s appeal and that the prosecution was given the green light to continue with the case.
“There’s no order stopping this plea taking and we ask you to dismiss their application,” argued Ashimosi.
Kamau put a spirited fight against his prosecution insisting it is a witch hunt based on pure malice.
The DPP recommended that he be charged afresh with abuse of office and flouting of tender rules.
The court will give its ruling on July 6.
