By Milton Olupot and Felix Osike PARLIAMENT yesterday questioned Attorney General Francis Ayume over former Chief Justice Wako Wambuzi continued occupation of the Government house, about two years after vacating office. The MPs who were considering the budget for the 2002/2003 financial year, said Wambuzi had made it impossible for the current Chief Justice, Benjamin Odoki, to take up his official residence. “Sometime back, the former Chief Justice approached the Government to facilitate him to acquire a personal home on similar arrangements like the civil servants. It took time for the Government to identify a house for purchase. Now the government has found this house,” Ayume said. “He has already paid half of the money which would entitle him to occupy it. Unfortunately that house happens to be occupied by a foreign judge.” State minister for public service Okumu Ringa said Wambuzi had received all his terminal benefits. “He is now on normal pension and he picks his cheques,” said Ringa. John Eresu (Kaberemaido) said Wambuzi was being given preferential treatment yet many other civil servants did not benefit from the scheme. Ends
