Central Bank Governor Kenya Professor Njuguna Ndungu has moved to court seeking orders to compel Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission to provide him with documents that has exchanged with Chief Justice touching on matter pending before court.
The governor through his lawyer Donald Kipkorir told Justice George Odunga, that the commission has refused to surrender the correspondence between it and the Chief Justice, saying that the court has the power to issue compelling orders against EACC.
The lawyer said that EACC has caused publication in one of the local daily accusing a high court judge of having issued an order stopping the prosecution of the CBK governor.
Mr Kipkorir said that his clients need the documents to commence contempt proceedings against the commission.
He said the correspondence are materials his client want to look at so as to determine his rights been violated.
Justice Odunga certified the application as urgent and directed the same be served upon EACC and the matter be inter parties on May 5 before Justice Mumbi Ngugi.
