The office of Ombudsman has been given 14 days to respond to embattled None Governmental Organization (NGO) board chairman Yusuf Fazul petition.

This is after the respondents, Commission on Administrative Justice asked for time to respond to the petition. In the case Fazul filed an application in court seeking the suspension of the investigative report by CAJ.

Already there temporary orders were issued stopping the implementation of the Ombudsman’s report on Fazul. The Ombudsman’s office was looking into allegations of forgery, falsification of academic documents and abuse of power against Mohamed.

The CAJ report recommended that the embattled executive director of the NGOs Coordination Board should be fired immediately and barred from holding public office on grounds that he was hired without relevant academic documents. Fazul, 29, was reinstated into his job after Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri sent him on compulsory leave to look into his appointment and dissolved the board.

Justice George Odunga has put on hold the implementation of the Ombudsman’s report on NGOs board chairman Yusuf Fazul’s academic documents.

The NGOs Coordination Board chairman had filed an application in court seeking the suspension of the investigative report.

Mahamed said that the court issued orders on October 27, stopping the office from investigating him and publishing the report.

He said the commission instead circulated the report which requires action against him, including terminating his employment and advertising his job.

The matter will be heard on the 8th of February this year.
