MP slams judiciary over cancellation of police recruitment

31 October 2014, 20:58 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP Kanini Kega has (Friday) slammed the judiciary for quashing the recent national police recruitment and ordering for a fresh exercise.

Kega said the judgement shattered dreams of thousands of young men mostly from poor families who had been recruited.

He asserted that the nullification was not done in good faith since the recruitment drive was competitive, clean and fair.

“The judiciary should play its core obligation of interpreting laws and stop overstepping its mandate. We are asking the Commission for Implementation of the Constitution (CIC) to intervene and castigate the judiciary,” said Kega.

Speaking during a press conference at a Nyeri town hotel, Kega said the judgement set a  wrong precedent arguing that the imminent recruitment of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) and that of National Youth Service (NYS) will also be contested in court. “The judgement should be appealed because there are people who qualified competitively.  Although there were cases of corruption malpractices in some areas that did not warrant general nullification. You cannot deny everyone personal rights because of few people,” added Kega.

He claimed that the ruling will diminish government’s operations and deny youth employment opportunities.

High court judge, Justice Isaac lenaola while nullifying the recruitment observed that the exercise was marred with a lot of irregularities.

The Judge declared the July 14th exercise illegal, unconstitutional and void.

The court also said the nullification of the exercise in 36 centres by NPSC was unconstitutional because the commission never gave reasons.

The case had been filed by Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) seeking the annulment of the entire exercise contending that it was corrupt and unfair in most places around the country.
