“In this case, Government decided to seek a second opinion, which is within its rights,” said Kiraitu.
He said Haji, who is also the Defence minister, is guided by what the Government believes about the County Commissioners.
“The Government’s stand is that the positions of County Commissioners are not any different from those of the regional commissioners they replaced,” said the minister.
He said there were attempts by certain politicians and individuals to try to paint the minister as disobeying the law.
Meanwhile, two activists want the High Court to order Internal Security Permanent Secretary Mutea Iringo to file in court a confirmation of a compliance with a directive that declared County Commissioners illegal.
