    Ex-Radio Africa Group journalist appeals to the court to block Ruto from hiring PS.

    Published on

    Albert Nyakundi Bichanga, formerly of Radio Africa Group, has petitioned the Milimani Law Courts to halt the recruitment of Principal Secretaries (PS).

    Nyakundi, former editor of the Star Newspaper, said that the Public Service Commission’s (PSC) advertising for Principal Secretaries was biased.

    He mentioned the need for 10 years of work experience and said that this disqualified potential candidates.

    He continued by saying that it was unlawful to demand that applicants provide documents such as Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and Good Conduct certificates.

    According to the petition that was submitted by the investigative journalist on Tuesday, September 27, part of the text read as follows: “This means applicants who have no experience at all or have experience of between 1 to 9 years professional experience and less than five years in top leadership or management are not eligible despite having other relevant qualifications.”

    Nyakundi further said that the application procedure was less competitive since PSC hid the number of available vacancies.

    Therefore, the investigative journalist asked the court to throw down the process of hiring Principal Secretaries since it was unconstitutional.
