Court stops vetting of principal secretaries nominated by President William Ruto

16th November, 2022

The appointment of 51 Principal Secretaries hangs in the balance after an activist moved to court to stop their vetting.

Fredrick Bikeri, through an urgent petition filed at the High Court, wants to stop the National Assembly from vetting and approving any of the nominees on account that they failed to meet the constitutional requirement on gender and regional balance.

“The list of persons appointed to the rank of Principal Secretary is illegal and unconstitutional since does not reflect the face of Kenya, has no gender balance, regional balance, tribal balance and inclusivity of the marginalised communities contrary to the provisions of the Constitution,” he said.
