High Court stalls repeat Police recruitment drive
28 August 2014, 13:16
Nairobi - The High Court has stalled a repeat recruitment drive by the Police service, which involved 36 centers.
The exercise, which sought to replace just over 1,200 recruits whose appointment was declared illegal by the National Police Service Commision NPSC just under two weeks ago has been stopped indefinitely until a case in which some recruits want their apparent removal revoked is heard.
The 27 recruits put in their petition last week.
They say that by the revocation of their recruitment letters, they have been unfairly treated since they did not use any corrupt means to get into the service.
Justice Isaac Lenaola, who is overseeing the case, said Thursday, that it was unlawful for that process to be re-done considering the current state of play as regards the case in court.
He ordered the NPSC to immediately cease the new recruitment until the case is heard.
The case is set to be heard next week.
