President William Ruto's administration has suffered another major setback as per the latest reports as indicated by standard digital.
Reporting, the high court has thrown out government's application to allow chief administrative Secretaries to assume office after court halted their appointment.
According to the report, Ruto's CAS appointees will continue staying in cold following applications from LSK and civil societies who claimed the decision was unconstitutional.
" Court dismisses application to allow CASs to start working following petition by LSK and Civil Society over their appointment; rules appeal by Itumbi premature", the report intimates.
Arguing, LSK noted kenyans will be the ones bearing the cost of financing CAS payment considering their lucrative monthly salaries of over sh 700k.
Besides LSK, Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition's leaders were against Ruto's decision to appoint 50 Chief Administrative Secretaries.
This comes a month after High Court barred the likes of Dennis Itumbi, Millicent omanga and others from assuming office of receiving any pay.
It should be noted that Chief Administrative Secretaries were to deputise cabinet secretaries in their ministries despite the presence of principal Secretaries.
Apparently, this is a huge blow to Kenya Kwanza's government considering the fact that president William Ruto has always been keen on rewarding his loyalists with state jobs.
Lastly in your opinion, do you agree with high court's decision to throw out CAS application?
