President William Ruto Wednesday morning hosted the Kenya Kwanza parliamentary group meeting at State House Nairobi.
During the 7am meeting, the UDA MPs were told that the ongoing vetting of Principal Secretaries has been temporarily suspended due to the court order obtained by LSK on Tuesday.
The Employment Labour Relations Court (ELRC) on Tuesday, November 15, issued orders restraining the National Assembly from vetting Permanent Secretaries (PS) nominated by President Ruto.
Justice Nzioki Makau ruled that the process be suspended until the hearing and determination of the application slated for Monday, November 21.
Justice Nzioki barred the Principal Secretary nominees from appearing before Members of Parliament from various committees.
Also, in the filed case, the Law Society of Kenya has challenged the list of nominees, arguing that it lacks gender, ethnic and regional balance.
Ruto during the State House meeting also told UDA MPs to focus on delivery and avoid “pushing for selfish and self-serving legislation like changing the Constitution to remove term limits.”
The meeting called by the President Ruto comes amid intensified lobby for the five slots for the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) membership.
