Suspended Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau's case postponed for a month

By Kamau Muthoni | June 17th 2015 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

The trial of suspended Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau has been postponed for a month by a magistrates court.

This is to allow the Chief Justice appoint a three-judge Bench to decide if the case against the CS, who is charged with abuse of office, will continue or not.

During yesterday’s proceedings, Kamau’s lawyers told the court yesterday that they could not prepare their defence as Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) was yet to furnish them with crucial documents.

They urged the court to compel the anti-graft watchdog to release the documents as had been directed by the High Court. EACC, however, denied withholding documents on the case, adding Kamau’s defence team was free to go for them.

Kamau is accused that while serving in the Ministry of Roads as PS, he and with ministerial tender committee re-designed the Kamukuywa-Kapsokwony-Sirisia road contrary leading to loss of Sh33 million.
