Industrial Court stops biometric registration of workers in six counties

Kisumu, Kenya: An Industrial Court judge in Kisumu has stopped the biometric registration for county government workers in six counties in Western Kenya.

This comes barely a week after the Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru launched the exercise officially in Kisumu.

Lady Justice Hellen Wasilwa issued temporary orders stopping the drive in Kakamega, Trans Nzoia, Kisumu, Migori, Bungoma and Busia following a case filed by Kenya County Government Workers Union.
