The duo, Albert Muindi and Samuel Ng’ang’a, expressed fears that the appointment of a new boss to head the police service will jeopardise national security.
They rushed to court through a certificate of urgency seeking to stop the appointments saying the security situation is very sensitive and needs seasoned hands in charge of the police.
Through their lawyer John Khaminwa, the two averred that the appointments of the new police leadership be suspended until after the March 4 elections, and cover the entire electioneering period including any possible run-off from.
“We are apprehensive that this period is too short for a newcomer at the helm of the police service to understand and fully comprehend the security situation, especially given the violent and graphic history of elections,” they said.
