Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) board chairman Wangai Ndirangu has defended his appointment saying it was done in accordance with the law.

Ndirangu wants a case filed by a lobby group dismissed because it is not motivated by public but selfish individual interest and an afterthought.

In reply to a petition filed by Sheria Mtaani, Ndirangu argues that the case has no basis as it is not premised on any allegation of denial, violation or threatened violation of the bill of rights.

“The applicant has not demonstrated any prejudice that it will suffer if the orders sought are not granted,” reads court papers.

According to Ndirangu, the case was filed by a selfish individual interests and it is an afterthought, mischievous, discriminatory against him and an abuse of the court process.

“That the appointment of the Interested Party (Ndirangu) by the President of Kenya, as the Board Chairman of Kenha, was done in compliance with the provisions of Section 5(1)(a) and 5(2) of the Kenya Roads Act No. 2 of 2007,”  claimed Kenha in court documents.

The lobby group moved to court seeking the removal of Ndirangu from office.
