Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu is again attracting the wrath of Director Of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji after skipping court three times.

DPP Noordin Haji is considering cancelling Waititu’s bail terms.

Waititu was to appear in court on Monday the 26th of October 2020 to answer charges in his ksh 588 million graft case. However, he did not show up.

According to his lawyers, the former Kiambu governor is sick in the high dependency unit (HDU) in hospital.

“My client has been unwell.He went for check up on the 24th of October and was referred to the high dependency unit for admission at a hospital,” Waititu’s lawyer said.

Further saying,

“He was admitted and he is not ready to proceed.”

The prosecution accused Waititu of evading trial seeing this is the third time he has missed court. It also requested Waititu’s lawyers to provide his medical records to the court.

Consequently, the DPP also requested a team of three government doctors to examine Waititu and present the medical report.

However, Waititu’s lawyers claimed that this would be an invasion of Waititu’s right to privacy.

State lawyers also sought to have the case go on without the former Kiambu governor. They further explained that even though Waititu is hospitalized, he should know when he can resume with his life.

However, Waititu’s lawyers disagreed further claiming the politician had a right to participate.
