Updates: Court Strikes Out Case Challenging Vetting of President Ruto's Nominated PSs

The Employment and Labour Relations court has on Tuesday struck out a case that had temporarily stopped the process of vetting of the Principal Secretaries who have been nominated by His Excellency the Head of State President William Ruto.

Justice Nzioka wa Makau had on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, suspended Parliament from continuing to vet the pass nominees pending the hearing of a lawsuit filed by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK).

"Labour Court strikes out cases challenging President Ruto’s Principal Secretary nominees, cites premature filing..."

The National Assembly had opposed the petition filed by an activist challenging the names of 51 Principal Secretaries nominated by President William Ruto on November 2.

In preliminary objections filed in court, the National Assembly had asked the court to have the suit struck out by the Employment and Labour Relations Court for lack of jurisdiction.

The new directive by the Hugh Court now grants the National Assembly departmental committee that has been vetting the principal secretary nominees to go ahead with the vetting.
