Council of Governor boss Wycliff Oparanya has announced plans to challenge court’s decision barring their counterparts from office, once charged with corruption in court.
In July Justice Mumbi Ngugi ruled that governors who take plea, on any corruption cases and abuse of office will be barred from accessing their officers until their cases are determined.
Kenya Mails has established that the council of governors held a meeting on Friday and discussed how they will deal with the issue.
“The ruling is very unfair and it shall be challenged in the legal corridors and as a matter of common interest, county governments will urgently move to court over the ruling seeking governors to step aside when charged on corruption matters,” a statement released by the council reads in part.
The ruling has so far seen three governors kicked out of office they are Moses Lenolkulal (Samburu), Mike Sonko (Nairobi) and Ferdinard Waititu (Kiambu).
