Nairobi - The High Court dismissed an application Thursday that had sought to extend their tenure until three months to the next General Election slated for March 4, 2013.
According to the Elections Act, any public officer seeking to contest the next polls should leave his position six months before such an election, Daily Nation reports.
With the court ruling, this means that civil servants venturing into politics must vacate office by September 4.
