NGEC enjoined in independent commissions court case

The National Gender and Equality Commission has been enjoined as an interested party in the Constitutional Petition No. 226 of 2018 challenging Executive Order No. 1 of 2018 which placed independent constitutional commissions under direct control of the Attorney General and Cabinet Secretaries.

Earlier the Law Society of Kenya-LSK had sued the Attorney General demanding the executive order issued last month be temporarily suspended. LSK argues that the directive to subject independent constitutional commission and offices as well as government departments is contrary to the law.

NGEC applied to be enjoined as an interested party and the request was granted by Lady Justice Wilfrida Okwany. Justice Okwany also directed that the Commission files its response and written submissions within 14 days, after receipt of the Attorney General’s response. The matter comes up for hearing on the 2nd October, 2018.
