News just in states that the Milimani Law Court has this afternoon extended temporary orders barring the national assembly from vetting the fifty one principal secretaries to head various ministries.
The ruling comes as the Attorney General (AG) Justin Muturi files an appeal to challenge the ruling.
The ruling comes after the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) and a businessman moved to the court to file a petition challenging the decision of president William Ruto appointing the 51 principal secretaries on the ground of lacking regional and gender balances.
LSK argued that there was no regional balance as only two communities from Mt Kenya and Rift Valley regions had a lions share compared to other regions.
These are bad news to president William Ruto as he we will have to wait for long before the court gives final ruling regarding the 51 PS nominees.
Do you think president Ruto considered the Constitutional requirement in appointing the 51 PSs.
