, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 24 – Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi has taken Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero head on over his application seeking to have him disqualified from representing Kakamega Senator Dr Boni Khalwale.

He claimed that Kidero had no power to determine who should represent Khalwale in the defamation case he filed against him.

Overview
  • Kidero is incensed at remarks by Khalwale uttered in Mumias last year when he told President Uhuru Kenyatta that the Nairobi Governor was the prefect of the criminals who looted the sugar firm.
  • Kidero denies involvement in the allegations, and credited himself for the growth of the company when he headed it.

The lawyer told Justice Joseph Sergon that the application by Kidero was meant to delay the hearing of the main suit in which he is enjoying an injunction against Khalwale.

Ahmednasir argued that he did not have anything personal nor had he ever represented Kidero in any matter to warrant his disqualification.

The court further heard that the application by Kidero was brought in bad faith and pleaded with the court to have it dismissed.

Justice Sergon however ordered Khalwale to desist from making defamatory statements concerning Kidero in relation to the management of Mumias Sugar Company Limited.
