Axed public servants gets relieve.

The high court has temporarily suspended Head of Public Service Felix Koskei’s decision to suspend 67 police officers over corruption.This follows a petition filed by activist Memba Ocharo who argues that Koskei’s decision was “procedurally irregular.”

“That a conservatory order is also issued restraining the respondents, their agents or any other person from interfering with the interested parties’ discharge of their duties until further orders of the court,” reads court papers.

Activist Ocharo moved to court to challenge the decision on grounds that Koskei’s action of recommending suspension of the officers was irregular and constituted a direct contravention of constitutional provisions safeguarding the independence of the office of the Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service.

Through lawyer Danstan Omari, the activist argues that it is against the law for a state organ to issue clearly illegal, unprocedural and malicious instructions to an independent office as that is an insult to articles 245 (4) and 246 (3)(b) of the Constitution of Kenya.
