Today in the evening, some fresh reports have emerged that the president of the republic of Kenya, Dr William Ruto and the attorney general, Mr Kihara Kariuki have been taken to court by one kenyan over his nomination of Mr Japheth Koome as the inspector general of police.
As reported by the Nation Africa, this kenyan who is a doctor by proffesion filed a case today where he sued Dr William Ruto and Kihara saying that their nomination was against the law. According to him, the nomination work is a task of the National Police Service Commision and what he can only do is to appoint one from the nominated ones. His case will be determined by the court and if he wins, then the President's nominee might not take over as the new Inspector General.
"Dr Magare Gikenyi, a Consultant Trauma and General Surgeon, says the President’s decision is unlawful and unconstitutional since the nomination of the IG should be done by the National Police Service Commission (NPSC).He says Dr Ruto, in nominating Mr Koome, exercised powers that are allocated to the NPSC and also failed to allow the procedure provided for in law to be followed."Said the reports.
