Suspended official sues Governor Anne Waiguru

A county executive member suspended for alleged incompetence has sued Governor Anne Waiguru (pictured) and the county government for wrongful dismissal.

The transport and public works executive, Peter Karugami, has accused Ms Waiguru of coercing him to sign a resignation letter so that she could suspend him.

Mr Karugami further claimed the decision by the county boss to suspend him was politically motivated, malicious and with a touch of impropriety and impunity.

The case will be mentioned on October 9.
