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 official said that on April 19, while attending a cabinet meeting, he was prevailed upon and coerced by the governor to sign a document titled 'resignation letter'.
The case will be mentioned on October 9.
