Good News to Nyeri Deputy Governor in a Case she Accuses Governor Kahiga of Blocking her Salary

The Employment and Labour relations court has struck out a request by Nyeri County governor seeking to stop the hearing of a case filed by deputy governor Caroline Karugu.

The judge has since noted that the court has the jurisdiction to hear and determine the case which is a blow to both the Nyeri county governor as well as his County secretary Benjamin Gachichio.

While striking out the objection by Kahiga and County Secretary Benjamin Gachichio who had challenged the court’s decision to hear the case, Justice Makau ruled that the court would proceed to hear and determine the petition.

The Employment and Labour relations court Judge Makau has also delivered good news to the deputy governor after he said that the petition by Karugu was filed in the correct court and was in the right forum.

This means that the lawyers of the Deputy Governor will go ahead to present evidence that the Governor as well as the county secretary have not been paying her as required under the law.

The two had argued that the deputy governor was not an employee of the county boss and hence there was no employer Vs employee differences that needed arbitration by the High Court division.
