Sakaja receives a reprieve as the court rules on cabinet vetting

The petition submitted by the Association of Muslim Lawyers and the Nubian rights forum was quashed by Justice Anna Mwaure in her decision because she found it to be filed too soon.

The groups opposed Governor Johnson Sakaja's nominations, claiming that the list was biased and omitted any members of the Islamic community.

According to Mwaure, there is no proof that any members of those communities applied for any of the open positions, and applicants were not given preference based on their religious beliefs.

The judge stated, "The claim of discrimination is generalized, and the court would be reluctant to infer such is the reality in the lack of any evidence to support such a claim."

The process was permitted by the court since additional instructions showed that there were clear procedures for selecting the CECMs and Secretaries.

The theory of separation of powers, according to the court, is essential for effective government in any country. The county assembly only recently began the review process when this application was submitted, the judge ruled.

Alvin Palapala, a Kitisuru County Assembly member, told that the assembly was eager to examine the CECMs.
