The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has warned Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal and his Kiambu counterpart Ferdinand Waititu against opening parallel offices.
Senate Deputy Speaker Kithre Kindiki ruled on Wednesday that governor Lenolkulal and Waititu can deliver their roles without stepping into their offices.
According to him, the judiciary is also at fault for allowing suspects in public office to defy orders and this goes against the Constitution. He also said leaders must let the prosecutorial system run its course so that suspects prove their innocence within the courtroom.
Kiambu deputy governor James Nyoro has been in charge of Kiambu county affairs and had earlier said that he will step aside for Waititu once the court clears him from graft charges.
Governor Lenolkulal is also facing four counts of abuse of office and conflict of interest leading to the loss of Sh84.6 million public funds.
He is accused of using his company-Oryx Service Station-to supply petrol and diesel to the county.
