NACADA CEO William Okedi will have to plea to corruption related charges after the high court declined to stop his prosecution saying he will not suffer any prejudice if he answers to the charges.
Justice Hedwig Ong’udi, in dismissing the application, has directed Okedi to appear before the magistrate court and take plea but has allowed him to go ahead and challenge his prosecution.
Okedi had wanted the court to stop his trial, saying the graft charges against him are malicious and in bad faith, blaming his boss NACADA chairman John Mututho for his prosecution.
Okedi had failed to take plea yesterday in anticipation of the high court ruling but will now answer to abuse of office charges among other corruption related charges related to his tenure at NACADA.
He was charged alongside four NACADA tender committee members who are accused of flouting procurement laws while procuring a consultant to manage the Alcoholic Drinks Control Fund.
They have denied the offence allegedly committed between September 2012 and April 2013 and have been released on 1 million Shilling bond each with an alternative cash bail of 300,000 shillings each.
