    Court has paused the vetting of Ruto’s Principal Secretaries.

    Published on

    On Tuesday, November 15, the Employment Labour Relations Court (ELRC) issued orders prohibiting the National Assembly from screening Permanent Secretaries (PS) appointed by President William Ruto.

    Fredrick Bikeri, an activist, filed a petition arguing that President Ruto’s selection of 51 individuals for screening and ratification by parliament as PSs lacked diversity and regional balance.

    In his ruling, Justice Nzioki prevented the candidates for Principal Secretary from testifying before several committees of the Kenyan Parliament.

    On Monday, November 21, Justice Nzioki Makau will hold a hearing to consider the application and make a ruling.

    The Law Society of Kenya also filed a challenge to the nominations, citing a lack of gender, racial, and regional diversity as grounds for dismissal.

    Businessman Stephen Kariuki Maina filed a second lawsuit, claiming that Public Service Commission interviewee Sylvia Nasela Muhoro, one of the PS candidates, was not present.

    Maina claims the whole thing is illegal and requests that the court throw it out.

    On Monday, November 14, the National Assembly started the process of vetting the 51 nominations for Principal Secretaries proposed by President William Ruto.
