By Masscomkenya Reporter

GOVERNOR Kaluki Ngilu Thursday won a decisive victory for the people of Kitui when a case by Mt Kenya Wholesalers against the County Government dramatically collapsed at the High Court.

Mr Malonza, flanked by Mr. Davidson Makau and County Senior Counsel Marianne Matuvi were all smiles as they filed the consent order declaring that the matter be marked as withdrawn and all consequential orders discharged. Mr Malonza signed the order on behalf of the County Government while Mwangi inked the deal personally.
The order was addressed to the Deputy Registrar of the High Court,Machakos and dated October 8, 2018.

The order also allows Mwangi to remove all his goods from the premises identified as City Gate Building along Mukuti Street within the Kitui Central Business District (CBD) area and at the store along Kilungya Street at Plot Number 610.

Further, the order requires the trader to remove all goods from the said premises and undertake not to carry on business on the same premises until and when they conform to County Regulations. It concluded that Mwangi and Mt Kenya Wholesalers have no further claims against the respective Chief Officers for Treasury and Health and the County Government of Kitui that all parties bear their own costs.
