High Court bars counties from setting up People’s Assemblies

Kenya News:

The High Court has issued orders restraining all county assemblies from passing or implementing motions on the formation of the people’s assemblies, dealing a blow to Nasa.

Kitui judge Lilian Mutende granted the interim conservatory orders on Monday, pending the determination of a case filed by a lobby group, Counties Development Group.

The case, filed on Monday afternoon, seeks to stop ward representatives from implementing motions tabled and moved before them for the appointment or election of members, delegations and observers to the people’s assemblies.

Justice Mutende’s directive will be in force until January 28 next year when an interparty hearing will be held.
