ICT CS Owalo Dealt Blow As Former KBC Boss Naim Bilal Moves To Court Seeking ICT CS Jailed

Dr. Naim Bilal, the former managing director of Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) has ordered Eliud Owalo, the cabinet secretary for information, communication, and the digital economy to surrender to a civil jail for breaching court orders.

In his notice of motion, Dr. Bilal complains that KBC's CS has not implemented a court order mandating his reappointment as the state broadcaster's MD.

He states that on October 31 of this year, an order was issued for his reappointment, and on November 8, copies of the order were delivered to the Public Service Commission (PSC) and the ICT Cabinet Secretary.

Dr. Bilal, however, asserts that the CS has disobeyed the court order, which has not yet been put into effect.

Dr. Bilal has sued the ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo urging him to prolong his term as managing director of the KBC.

His rights had been violated, the court found, and he had a reasonable expectation that his contract would be renewed in March of this year.

The ICT CS and Public Service Commission were also forbidden by the court from hiring any new candidates for the position, according to a decision by Justice Ocharo Kebira.

When it came to costs, the court ruled in Dr. Bilal's favor and instructed the CS to re-appoint him as KBC MD.
