LSK And Azimio Gangs Up Against President Ruto For Appointing Waititu, Alleges This

Many Kenyans especially those from the Azimio side were shocked after President Ruto appointed the former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu a member of the Nairobi River Commission.

The former Kiambu Governor was impeached in January 2020 on the claims of corruption, gross misconduct and abuse of office. He also tried to move to court, but he lost all the court battles.

Following this, the Law Society Of Kenya(LSK) has accused president Ruto of going against the Constitution. It also revealed its plans to move to court to prevent such people from occupying public offices. " We are keenly looking at the appointments and engaging civil society organisations with a view of challenging some. For Waititu, we will definitely go to court. It is clear that once impeached, you can not hold public office," the LSK president said.

Likewise, the Azimio coalition teamed up with LSK to attack Ruto by claiming that the government is taking a dangerous direction by appointing people with court cases to assume office.

However, Ruto's allies defended him and claimed that some of these cases facing Ruto's appointees were politically instigated and all of them are innocent until proven guilty.
