According to Nation Media, a doctor named Magare Gikenyi, a surgeon, argued that Ruto's decision was unconstitutional, revealing that the appointment of such a person was the responsibility of the police committee. National Survey (NPSC).

In a statement captured by the media, Gikenyi reiterated that President Ruto is said to have power beyond borders and that he does not have the authority to initiate the recruitment process for the post himself as Inspector.

"The president is giving himself powers he doesn't have. Only the National Police Service Commission initiates the process after obtaining the position of Inspector General. The president does not have the right to hire an IG on his own," said Dr. Gikenyi in court documents compiled by the Nation.
