Githu Muigai in trouble after he mistakenly sued Jubilee leaders

Fake news to blame for the misunderstanding

Mandera County Assembly Speaker Mohamed Khalif stated that he would take legal action against AG Githu Muigai for suing the House in a case targeting countries that have passed the motion on creation of the People's Assemblies.

Khalif explained that Mandera County, which is controlled by the Jubilee party, did not debate or pass the people's assembly motion.

There had been fake news reports of Mandera MCAs of passing the controversial motion, but it remains unclear if the office of the Attorney General relied on them while filing the case.

Muigai moved to the High Court seeking to declare the formation of the assemblies illegal and unconstitutional.

“The establishment of the People’s Assemblies by the aforementioned county assemblies is an illegality as the institution is alien to the Constitution and is neither within the framework of the County Governments Act or any other legislation," the Attorney General stated in court papers.
