High Court Makes Final Ruling On Having Caretaker President



The High Court has made a final ruling on Human Rights activist Okiya Omtatah's case seeking the formation of a caretaker government.

Justice John Mativo on Tuesday dismissed the case filed by the activist citing that he lacked jurisdiction to rule on the matter.

He added that the matter falls within the Supreme Court.

After the ruling, Mr Omtatah pledged to take his case to the highest court in the land for determination.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice David Maraga certified a case by three voters seeking to stop the repeat poll as urgent. He directed that the case would be heard on Wednesday at 10 am.

Advocate Harun Ndubi,who was representing the petitioners,stated that the Supreme Court had included all the presidential candidates as respondents in the petition.

Last month, a leader affiliated to the National Super Alliance (NASA) proposed for the formation of a government led by National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

Former Nyamira Senator Kennedy Mong'are wanted the country to form a caretaker government instead of holding a presidential election in October.

Mr Mong'are argued that the IEBC was facing various issues and would not be able to organize an election within the days stipulated by the law.

He stated that the Speaker should, therefore, take over the government as the caretaker as dictated by the Constitution.
