High Court bars Senators from County Boards

25 August 2014, 12:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has barred Senators from convening and taking their places in the County Development Boards.

Governors, through the Governors Council have protested the inclusion of Senators in the Boards and have gone to court to contest the same.

Monday, Justice Isaac Lenaola temporarily suspended Senators from convening in the boards, pending the hearing of the case by Governors.

The County Development Act 2014, which was ascented to by President Uhuru Kenyatta allows Senators to be Chairmen of the boards, with Governors the vice Chairmen and Mps and Members of County Assemblies MCAs also on the board.

Governors have gone to court wanting the act declared null and void and outright illegal as they claim Senators should only perform legislative and not executive roles.

Justice Lenaola ordered the cast to begin September 7 and also forwarded the file to the Chief Justice's office to form a new bench that will tackle the matter.

Some Senators had already called on Governors to set up meetings this week, a move that had already irked some Governors.

The decision on the case will have a huge impact on Governors and their powers in terms of development at County level, with some saying that unless the Act is changed, Senators will derail devolution.
