Karua makes surprise confession in case against Waiguru
The confession now throws the whole case into a spin.
Karua admitted that she did not include the crucial evidence she claimed went missing in the initial affidavits she filed in court in her case against Waiguru.
The confession now throws the whole case into a spin after Monday's confusion at the Kerugoya High Court when the piece of evidence was reported to have mysteriously disappeared from the petition case.
The court directed the court's deputy registrar to produce judiciary staff who received Karua's petition with Judge Lucy Gitari directing the staff to explain how Ms Karua's flash disc containing video evidence on voter bribery got lost from the file.
"There is a wide conspiracy. Court has a duty to get to the bottom of the matter. It is incumbent upon this court to exhaust its own internal inquiry. Bring the person who wrote the receipt to explain," Ms Karua had told the court.
While testifying during the hearing of her petition against Waiguru, Karua had complained that a flashdisk containing part of her evidence had gone missing in court.
The Narc Kenya party leader divulged that the disk had videos of Jubilee Party and Governor Waiguru’s agents bribing voters.
“I was accompanied by my lawyer, Gitobu Imanyara, on September 5, 2017, to file the petition. I witnessed the handing over of the petition, and sealed envelopes containing the flashdisk and a compact disk. We also asked the court officers to handle them with care,” said Ms Karua.
“The disk has a video of a Jubilee Party official bribing voters at Kangaru School in Mwea, Ciagiini and Wang’uru. Also, a video and photos of Mutithi Primary School headteacher canvassing and bribing voters at the gate. They were filed together with the petition,” she added.
