Waititu is seeking to have courts only grant an arrest warrant when EACC consult the courts during a hearing with him in attendance.

In the motion filed on Thursday, the Governor is also seeking to have the courts compel EACC into returning any documents they confiscated from the Kiambu boss.

"That the court be pleased to grant an order prohibiting future searches and seizures by the 1st respondents - EACC - without orders granted by the court and without hearing the applicants," Governor Waititu's petition reads in part.

The governor claimed that the EACC had confiscated his log books, cheque books, title deeds and assorted equipment which he demanded to be returned.

EACC ransacked my house looking for nothing - Governor Waititu

Governor Waititu accused the EACC detectives of trashing his Thome and Runda homes with no specific aim.

"The search warrant was formulated and crafted in a manner that it was designed to be a catch fall trap and instrument that allowed the EACC to turn upside down and ransack my houses and belongings," he stated.

Waititu was arested at his Runda home in May this year and was held for over 6 hours in interrogation at the EACC headquarters.
