Makueni County chief of staff Musyoka Kivungi was on Monday 12, charged in Makindu law court for being drunk and disorderly.

The county chief of staff and Hasina Maweu were arrested by Makindu police at Camp David Restaurant on Sunday night on basis of being drunk and causing disturbance to the public.

The duo appearing before Senior Resident Magistrate Jerad Mutiso and state counsel Tito Wanga pleaded not guilty to the two counts.

According to the charge sheet the duo behaved in a manner likely to cause public disturbance.

The court released them on a bond of Sh20,000 each or cash bail of Sh2,000 each.

The case continues October 2, 2017 at the same court.

At the same court a case involving the same chief of staff was adjourned for a sixth time in a row hence provoking the defense side to request for the case to be dropped.

The case filed at the same court failed to proceed due to lack of witnesses involving the Chief of staff, Willy Malile (Mbooni sub-county admistrator), Mr. Urbanus Wambua and Mr. Keffa Amos an enforcement officer who were being accused of threatening to beat the now Mavoko constituency candidate and former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile last year March 26 at Darajani village within Makueni County.

Following the incident, they were arraigned at Makindu courts where they pleaded not guilty and released on Sh10,000 cash bail on April 4, 2016.

The case was slated same year July 11 but failed to take off because the magistrate was engaged in other activities.

In subsequent dates set by the Makindu law courts the case could not take off since Kalembe Ndile, Kyalo Laiti (Former Mtito-Andei Mayor), Peterson Ngari and Ms. Judy Wavinya lined as key witnesses in the pre-trial failed to turn up and testify in Court.
