Major win for Uhuru

Mr Omtatah had sued President Kenyatta, the Public Service Commission (PSC), the Attorney-General and the Speaker of the National Assembly over the recent Cabinet appointments by the head of state.

However, the office of the Attorney General responded in an application seeking to have President Kenyatta dropped from the list of respondents given that he enjoys presidential immunity.

The High Court on Wednesday agreed with the AG's office and removed the name of Uhuru Kenyatta from the challenging the creation of Chief Administrative Secretaries.

The judge noted that the constitution offers the president immunity from civil matters and cannot be sued.

The case will, however, continue without the head of state filing responses.

Omtatah has asked the court to quash the appointment of chief administrative secretaries and principal secretaries, arguing that they were hand-picked and appointed without being recommended by the PSC.
