Jubilee Governor taken to court
Here is why
Benson Njuki on Monday filed a case objecting Mr Kahiga’s nomination of Caroline Karugu as his Deputy Governor.
Mr. Njuki claims that the Governor made the nomination unlawfully.
Kahiga became Nyeri Governor after the tragic death of Wahome Gakuru, Nyeri's former Governor, during a road accident near Kabati along the Thika-Murang’a highway.
This left a vacancy in the Deputy Governor's office.
Ms Kaguru was nominated after Supreme Court cleared the path for Mr Kahiga and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to nominate their deputies after which Members of the County Assembly within 60days were to vet the nominees.
Ms Kaguru has already been vetted by the Nyeri ward representatives.
Nairobi remains without a Deputy Governor after former Vivo boss Polycarp Igathe left the office unceremoniously.
