Ferdinand Waititu has filed an application seeking conservatory orders to revoke the decision of the Senate to impeach him pending the hearing and determination of his application.
Waititu who filed the application on Thursday, January 30 under a certificate of urgency at the constitutional division of the High Court will wait for directions from the court and hope that the judge will grant him conservatory orders.
If granted conservatory orders, the governor will remain locked out of office from an earlier directive by court.
However, it will be a great relief since he will still be governor.
This comes as Deputy Governor James Nyoro is set to be sworn in Thursday, January 30.
Nyoro’s supporters have vowed they will not allow any interference of the swearing-in. The law says he must be sworn in between 10am and 2pm.
Should the High Court uphold his impeachment, Waititu could still seek redress in the Court of Appeal where if not satisfied, he can still go to the Supreme Court.
