Big blow to Raila Odinga after high court quashed 128 appointees to parastatals


High court and supreme court

High Court three-judge bench quashed several gazette notices nullifying the appointment of 128 appointed to various parastatals in 2018.

This now deals a big blow to over 128 appointees including politicians and mostly ODM leader Raila Odinga close allies in various parastatals after the court ruled that their appointments were unconstitutional.

Among those who were appointed during that period included Former Chief of Defense Force Julius Karani, former Governor Benjamin Cheboi and Margaret Saitoti.

The Attorney General asked the court to stay the judgement for 30 days.

However, Lawyer Dudley Ochiel for Katiba Institute has opposed the application requested the court to direct them to file a formal application.

Justices Jessie Lessit, Chacha Mwita and Lucy Njuguna declined to stay the judgement and directed the AG to file a formal application giving reasons for his request.
