The High Court is expected to deliver a ruling on Monday, July 3 deciding the fate of the 50 Chief Administrative Secretaries (CASs) appointed following a petition challenging their appointment process.
Through a statement released on Sunday July 2, the Judiciary announced that the decision will be made today at 9am.
Moreover, the 50 CAS were sworn in by President William Ruto after the National Assembly refused to vet them saying it had no constitutional authority to do so.
Later, the High Court issued orders preventing the CASs from assuming office awaiting the hearing and determination of a petition challenging their appointment process.
Furthermore, the court also barred the CAS appointees from earning a salary, remuneration, and any benefit pending the conclusion of the case filed by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) and Katiba Institute.
The Judiciary claimed it did not preside over the swearing-in ceremony, adding that none of their officials were sent to State House to conduct the ceremony and that it has no role whatsoever in the process.
Nonetheless, the appointments of the CASs have been met with amassed frustration from a large section of Kenyans who question why the appointees were sworn in even after the process had been termed unconstitutional.
