The High Court has recently made new announcements on the suspension of the screening of Principal Secretaries.
This occurs only a few days after the same court ordered the National Assembly to halt the procedure in response to a petition filed by activist Fredrick Bikeri regarding President Ruto's selection of PSs.
Bikeri had argued in the aforementioned petition that President Ruto's Principal Secretaries had failed to uphold the constitutional requirements for diversity and regional balance.
The Court has declared that the ban on the vetting process has been extended until further notice in light of the recent developments. Today, November 21st, 2022, was the scheduled hearing date and time for the petition.
According to additional reports, the Attorney General has also petitioned the court on behalf of the Head of State to appeal the case. According to reports, the AG wants the high court to reverse its rulings and allow the vetting process to proceed as scheduled.
