In Summary

  • The Judiciary, in a statement on Sunday, said that the decision is expected to be rendered in the course of the day
  • The High Court later issued orders barring the CASs from assuming office pending the hearing and determination of a petition challenging their appointment process

The High Court is set to deliver a ruling to determine the fate of the 50 Chief Administrative Secretaries (CASs) he appointed following a petition challenging their appointment process.

The Judiciary, in a statement on Sunday, said that the decision is expected to be rendered in the course of the day.

The 50 CASs were sworn in by President William Ruto after the National Assembly declined to vet them saying it had no constitutional authority to do so.

The High Court later issued orders barring the CASs from assuming office pending the hearing and determination of a petition challenging their appointment process.

In the ruling delivered by Lady Justice Hedwig Ong’udi, the court also barred the appointees from earning a salary, remuneration, and any benefit pending the conclusion of the case filed by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) and Katiba Institute.

Subsequently, the Judiciary claimed it did not preside over the swearing-in ceremony, noting that it did not send any official to State House to conduct the ceremony and that it has no role whatsoever in the process.
