“To this end, the Applicant seeks the interpretation of the court of the scope of the 3rd respondent’s (Milimani chief magistrate) duty in considering ex parte (EACC’s) applications for search warrants and whether the 3rd Respondent judiciously exercised its discretion in granting the search warrants in the manner that it did,” reads court papers
