Outgoing AG Wants Uhuru's Name Removed From Omtatah's Case Challenging Cabinet Appointments

Outgoing Attorney General wants Uhuru's name removed from Omtatah's case challenging cabinet appointments



Outgoing Attorney General (AG) Githu Muigai has reportedly moved to court to have President Uhuru Kenyatta's name expunged from a case challenging appointment of cabinet secretaries.

From what we have  gathered, the AG filed an application in court on Wednesday, February 14, seeking to have Uhuru's name cleared in the ongoing case based on the fact that he is the President of the Republic of Kenya.

“The first respondent in this case is the sitting President of the Republic of Kenya. He cannot be sued because he enjoys presidential immunity,” the application read in part.

The case in question was filed by Activist Okiya Omtatah on January 29, 2018 following appointment of new cabinet secretaries and creation of new positions in the cabinet. In his petition, Omtatah held that creation of the position of Chief Administrative Secretary was unconstitutional.

As was previously reported by TUKO.co.ke, President Uhuru picked Court of Appeal President Paul Kihara Kariuki to replace Muigai. we understands that the outgoing AG will remain in office until the newly appointed AG officially takes over from him.
