BY SAM ALFAN.
Former Central Bank Governor Prof Njuguna Ndung’u has a momentius reprieve after a Sh1.2 billion security tender case against him was postponed.
The Court of Appeal was told that the former CBK boss has appointed lawyer Cecil Miller to represent him in a case where he is challenging the decision to charge him over the contested tender award.
Mr Miller takes over from lawyer Donald Kipkorir, who represented Prof Ndung’u at the High Court over the same matter.
Appearing before Justices Sankale Kantai, Jamila Mohamed and Philomena Mwilu, Prof Ndung’u told the court that he had just instructed him (Miller) and needed time to file his submissions.
The court allowed his request for an adjournment and directed that he files his submission within ten days.
The DPP and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) will respond to the application within seven days.
The hearing date will also be set on priority basis in the month of September 2016.
