Committee Member Now Says What'll Happen To Vetting of PSs Hours After Court Stopped The Process

Yesterday, President William Ruto's administration suffered a major setback after Labour Court judge Nzioka Makau ordered the National Assembly to stop the vetting process of the 51 principal secretaries appointed by the Head of State.

In a statement, Justice Nzioka noted that the process will be discontinued until further notice when a case filed by Activist Fredrick Bikeri at the Law Society of Kenya is heard and determined.

Activist Fredrick Bikeri had argued that the President's choice of PSs did not meet the constitutional requirements with regard to inclusivity and regional balance.

Speaking during the morning cafe show at TV 47 on Wednesday, one of the committee members leading the vetting process, Hon Titus Lotee (MP Kacheliba) has stated that the vetting process will go on as usual today.

"The vetting of the PSs will continue, I sit in a committee and we are going to vet the PS nominee today. Even if we as Parliamentarians are served, we will continue because it is not contempt of court," Kacheliba MP Titus Lotee said.
