Kenya: President Ruto Chairs Second Cabinet Meeting at State House, Nairobi

Nairobi — President William Ruto on Tuesday chaired the second Cabinet meeting at State House Nairobi.

The sitting came even as the Employment and Labour Relations Court stopped the National Assembly from the ongoing vetting of the fifty-one Principal Secretaries.

Justice Musyoki Wa Makau gave the order, pending the hearing and determination of a petition before the court, the names of the PS nominees should not be presented to the Parliament.

He said serious issues have been raised by the applicant touching on the disparity, ethnic and gender balance.

The judge directed that the matter be placed before another court in the division for interpartes hearing on Monday.

The Law Society of Kenya moved the court saying the nomination of PS did not meet the criteria and the aspirations of all Kenyans and was not inclusive.

The lawyers’ body sued the Attorney General, the National Assembly, and the Public Service Commission which conducted the nominations of the 51 PS nominees. – Presidential Communication Service
