President William Ruto

Thursday marked another success for President William Ruto in his effort to create the position of Chief Administrative Secretaries in the executive.

The Employment and Labour Relations Court highlighted that the Public Service Commission established the office in accordance with the proper procedure in a highly anticipated decision.

Last year, the Law Society of Kenya hurried to court to try to prohibit the President from appointing CASs. The PSC had already begun the process of hiring candidates interested in the posts when the petition was filed.

However, LSK had objected to the lack of public input into the creation of the post and the financial burden on the nation if the head of state were permitted to nominate people to the stated roles.
