Petition Filed to Remove Jubilee Governor After Failed Assassination Attempt Accusations

A petition was filed to remove a Jubilee Party governor at the Milimani law court.

Milimani Law Courts

Aden Mukhtar Bare, the father of Former Garissa Finance CEC Idris Mukhtar who survived an attempted assassination, filed the suit challenging the academic papers of Governor Korane.

Bare asked the court to declared the seat vacant arguing that Garissa County boss presented fake academic papers, thereby breaching the Constitution.

Authenticity of certificate

He alleged that Korane had infringed the Leadership and Integrity Act by filing and presenting certificates he does not possess.

According to Bare, enigmas began to emerge over the authenticity of the governor’s Masters of Business Administration degree certificate only months after he had assumed office following last year’s General Election.

He further stated that on January 30, 2018, the University of Nairobi – through the office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor – allegedly stated that Korane did not graduate with the MA in Business Administration from the school.

Blame over attempted assassination

Bare, who spoke to members of the press at Milimani Law Courts pointed a finger at Governor Korane over his son’s shooting.

He told journalists that his son was still in a comma and according to his doctors, even if he healed he will suffer permanent disability.

The father of the ex-Finance CEC confirmed that his son was still in India for further specialised treatment.

Mukhtar is currently fighting after a failed assassination attempt that had sucked in Korane who denied any connection.
