Speaking on Joy FM’s Newsfile Saturday, he slammed the Chief Justice Committee for its “strict, hard” interpretation of the public procurement act.

Breaches of the public procurement act formed the main basis for her dismissal when the committee found her guilty of “stated misbehaviour and incompetence.”

“The decision they have given is too hard, it is an overkill,” Mr Baako stressed on the show.
