17 May 2012, 08:36
Nairobi - Capital News reports that two activists filed a suit against the Attorney General and Internal Security Minister seeking to bar them from effecting the appointments of 47 County Commissioners, as they were done without consultation contrary to the National Accord and Reconciliation Act 2008.
Patrick Njuguna and Charles Omanga say the appointments made by President Mwai Kibaki last Friday did not take into consideration gender, regional balance, public participation, competitive recruitment and representation of the marginalised communities.
The applicants argue that the appointments are in breach and ignore the express provision of the Constitution in particular Article 10(2) through the requirement for public participation and competitive recruitment.
