LSK turns guns on Muigai, Njee over Anglo Leasing

In a swift defence however, Muigai said that the allegations by LSK of unethical misconduct were malicious.

The AG said that the issues that the council commented on are pending before the courts of the Republic of Kenya, pointing out that a ruling on that application is expected on Friday next week.

He said that the Senior Deputy Solicitor General has filed an affidavit providing full and frank disclosure of all the proceedings in the Swiss and UK courts regarding the cases which started long before he was in office.

“The chairman of the law society is himself presently under investigation by the Director of Public Prosecutions on the advice of the Kenya police for alleged criminal offenses relating to the illegal and unlawful sale of Malili Ranch. One would expect him of all people to have respect for the due process of law,” Muigai charged.

On Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta authorised the immediate payment of the controversial Sh1.4 billion Anglo Leasing debts, saying further delays were putting the country’s economy at risk. READ: Pay Anglo Leasing now, orders Uhuru.

A statement from State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu late on Thursday said Kenya had exhausted all judicial options to forestall payment of the debts following judgments issued by courts in Geneva and London.

President Kenyatta said the Anglo Leasing debts pay off will help the government execute its $2billion Eurobond.

He said the Eurobond will greatly contribute to the national budget slated for next month.

President Kenyatta explained that failure to secure the Eurobond would place a strain on the budget, leading to inefficient service delivery by the National Government and drastic pay cuts to various sectors of the government.
