The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji has failed in his disclose to bar the media from retaining Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, a key peep within the Sh791 million National Childhood Provider (NYS) corruption trial.

Milimani chief Justice of the Peace Francis Andayi rejected the petition announcing the applying to support the session on camera, became without merit.

Ms Waiguru became the Devolution Secretary when thousands and thousands of shillings had been siphoned from the Disclose company below the ministry. She later resigned in 2015.

Rather a form of merchants and inclined senior authorities officers are coping with costs over the scandal. They comprise inclined Devolution Everlasting Secretary Dr Peter Mangiti, inclined NYS Director-Traditional Nelson Githinji, ex-NYS finance director Samuel Wachenje and industry folks including Josephine Kabura and Ben Gethi, amongst others.

Mr Haji through prosecutor Jackson Makori wanted the media saved out of the case as Ms Waiguru shed light as to how the thousands and thousands of shillings had been fraudulently paid out to firms for the provision of items and companies to NYS.

Primarily based mostly on Mr Makori, the media can also misreport or select Ms Waiguru’s testimony out of context.

The application became adversarial by the defence team who puzzled why the DPP became looking out for to bar coverage of the case now.

The trial can also not proceed as Mr Gethi and Mr Wachenje did not maintain a lawyer to symbolize them.

The case became adjourned to August 5.
