The no holds barred lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi through his law firm Ahmednasir and Abdikadir & Co Advocates wants Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) Governor Dr Patrick Njoroge investigated for abuse of office without authority.

The firm said that the CBK for the past 18 months has been run without a fully constituted board as required by the Central Bank of Kenya Act.

The firm accused Dr Njoroge of running the CBK as a one man show in the absence of a fully constituted board.

In a letter written to the EACC CEO Halakhe Waqo, the firm claims the Governor has spent, incurred expenses and created liability for the bank without any due authority or supervision by the board of directors as mandatorily required by law.

Personal property

“Dr Njoroge has abused his office, usurped the powers of the Board and acted in flagrant breach of the law by running the bank as his personal property,” the letter read in part.

The firm argued that under Njoroge’s tenure, billions of taxpayer’s money had been unlawfully spent with no checks, balances and no management oversight.

“We are therefore asking for a proper and bona fide investigation by EACC without due regard to one’s status, position, tribal and political affiliation or patronage,” read the letter.

Ahmednassir’s firm challenged the EACC to take the opportunity to prove wrong the widely held public perception that the commission is a mere lapdog and an appendage of the executive and investigate Dr Njoroge properly and within the confines of the law.
