Man moves to court to block Charitu Ngilu from effecting appointments

By -BY KURIAN MUSA | Jan 17th 2014 | 1 min read


Nairobi, Kenya: A new twist of controversy is ensuing after the proposals by Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu to recruit new staff was challenged in Court on Friday.

A suit was filed challenging a letter of proposals by CS Ngilu to the public service commission seeking appointments of new employees and deploy the current office bearers out of her ministry.

Clifford Keya, the applicant, says the proposals to promote, appoint and deploy public officers of the ministry of land and Urban Development as contained in the letter dated January 10, 2014 contravenes the provisions of article 232 of the constitution of Kenya.

The application was certified as urgent by Justice Mumbi Ngugi in her Chambers and gave directions for the case to be heard in the presence of lawyers of both parties on Thursday next week, January 23.

Ngilu has been sued together with the Public Service Commission and the Attorney General’s office headed by Professor Githu Muigai.

Keya avers that such personal proposal by the CS contravenes the guiding principles of leadership and integrity as enshrined under article 73 (2) (c) of the laws of Kenya.
