John Sawe, a resident of Eldoret town has gone to court seeking to have the appointment of KRA Commissioner General James Githii Mburu declared illegal.
Mburu was appointed by CS Henry Rotich on June 4th after his predecessor John Njiraini left office.
Sawe’s lawyer Kaira Nabasenge said that the appointment was unconstitutional because it favored one ethnic group in violation of Article 232 of the Constitution which guarantees that the public service should be founded on ethnic diversity. he said that it was a clear show of discrimination against other ethnic groups.
Nabesenga petitioned the court to declare the appointment null and void
