Lawyer Donald Kipkorir and former Central Bank Governor Njuguna Ndung’u.

BY SAM ALFAN.

City Lawyer Donald Kipkorir is claiming over sh 40 million from former Central Bank Governor Njuguna Ndung’u.

The money arises from a suit in which lawyer Kipkorir represented the Governor at the Milimani Law courts in 2014.  Ndung’u was challenging his prosecution over a Sh1.2 billion tender for the installation of security software at the Central Bank.

Kipkorir claims he filed the current advocate/client bill of costs dated 13 September last year.

According to the court documents, Kipkorir charged the former CBK shs 30 million for receiving instruction to act for him in respect of the said case.

He also charged him shs 2000 for drawing the petition and sh 1150 for receiving and perusing documents via emails. Amount owned to Kipkorir totals to sh 49,940,922.

Ndung’u through Lawyer Kipkorir filed the case at the High court and obtained temporary orders stopping his arrest and prosecution over the controversial Shs 1.2 million security tender.

The court later delivered its verdict and directed that Ndung’u be prosecuted over the said tender.

Ndung’u however moved to the court of appeal and obtained orders stopping his arrest and prosecution. This time, he changed his legal representation and opted for Lawyer Cecil Miller.

Ndung’u’s charges arise from the award of a Sh1.2 billion tender for the installation of security software at the Central Bank.

According to documents in possession with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Ndung’u attempted to confer a benefit on one of the bidders- Horsebridge systems East Africa limited by directing that the contract be given to the said bidder notwithstanding the termination.

The investigations by the commission established Ndung’u who is the governor and the accounting officer willfully failed to comply with the law relating to procurement procedures in relation to the delivery installations, testing and commissioning of the system for CBK.
