Judge Withdraws From a Case Challenging The Appointment Of 51 Principal Secretaries

An plea by a Nakuru su-geon contesting the appointment of 51 principal secretaries has been postponed by Justice Nduma Nderi (PS). A motion filed by Dr. Magare Gikenyi was designated as urgent by the employment and labor relations court judge, who ordered that it be served and answered within 14 days.

Nderi instructed that the matter be brought before the chief judge for instructions and re-allocation before any other judges.

Having previously addressed the flaws identified in the application, he claimed he was unable to handle the case now. On November 29, Nderi declared the application to have been prematurely submitted and dismissed it.

After vetting and swearing in, he gave Magare one more opportunity to contest the appointment.

After the 51 PSs and a senior administrative Secretary (PAS) were sworn in on December 2 in a ceremony at the state house, which was presided by by president William Ruto, Magare returned to the court on December 5. He filed claims against the National Assembly, the Public Service Commission, and the Attorney General.
