John Ndirangu lawsuit by a state agency- The ombudsman
The Commission on Administrative Justice, commonly known as the ombudsman wants John Ndirangu declared unfit to hold public office after he was found guilty on two counts.
It told High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) unlawfully cleared Mr Ndirangu to run for the post during the March 4, 2013, general elections. In spite of the complaints it had filed with the electoral body, its lawyer said.
Mr. Ndirangu was fined Sh100,000 by the anti-corruption court in Nairobi. He did not challenge the findings before the Court of Appeal.
The ombudsman argued that the Constitution was explicit that a person was disqualified from being elected as MP if he was found to have misused or abused a State office or public office or in any way to have contravened chapter six of the Constitution which relates to the integrity of a public office holder.
“Mr. Ndirangu ought to vacate the office of MP in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution,” the ombudsman said through a lawyer.
Mr. John Ndirangu asked the court to dismiss the suit. He argued that the period within which the election of an MP can be challenged had already lapsed.
The law provided that the suit ought to have been filed within 28 days after the IEBC declared the results, he said.
His lawyer also said the commission had the option to pursue the procedure on the settlement of disputes relating to nominations but failed to do so.
