The High Court has moved in and suspended the decision by Interior Cabinet Secretary Major Gen. (Rtd.) Joseph Nkaissery to retire John Mututhe, the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) chairman.
According to the NACADA chair, Nkaiserry letter of retirement dated September 6 claimed the reason for having him retired was based on claims that he was appointed the Chairman of the Transport Licensing Appeals Tribunal.
High Court Judge George ruled that Mututho, who sued Nkaissery over the retirement farce, has presented a debatable case before the court setting the hearing on October 4, 2016.
Mututho maintains his stand that he has been in the forefront fighting corruption at the Authority, terming the move by Nkeissery malicious.
“My purposed retirement is steeped in bad faith since I have been in the forefront of fighting corruption at the Authority where 500 million shillings has been lost,” says Mututho in court documents.
“It is clear that the CS is only intent on removing me from the Chairmanship of the Authority to frustrate the anti-corruption cases that substantially touch on his ministry as I have already declined the appointment to the Transport Licensing Appeals Tribunal,” he said.
Mututho wants the High Court to suspend the letter retiring him and also restrain the Interior CS from retiring him or terminating his chairmanship without complying with the law.
