Why Machakos Court has Suspended Notice Declaring Kisii Deputy Governor’s Position Vacant

The Machakos High Court has halted the publication of the gazette notice that vacated the position of Deputy Governor of Kisii County.

Subsequent to the Senate’s successful impeachment of Deputy Governor Robert Monda on charges including gross misconduct, offences under national law, and misuse of office, the notice was issued.

As per a Citizen Digital report, Justice Olei Francis Rayola has rendered a decision maintaining the suspension until April 10, pending the Milimani Law Courts’ deliberation on the petition lodged by Jared Ratemo against the Senate. Until then, the suspension will be in effect.

The judge’s ruling stated that the petition pertains to events that transpired at the Senate and Kisii county assembly; thus, Machakos is not an appropriate venue to hear it.

“This matter be mentioned before Justice Eric Ogola at the Milimani Commercial court on April 10, 2024. In order to preserve the status quo and allow the petitioner to ventilate issues raised in this petition, no gazettement is to be issued declaring the seat of DG-Kisii County vacant until the next mention date.”

Subsequently, the senate was required to provide a response within seven days, and Ratemo was mandated to deliver the document to them within three days.

A few hours after county leader Simba Arati appointed county public service board chairman Elijah Obebo as his deputy, the court rendered its decision.

Speaker of the Kisii County Assembly Philip Nyanumba delivered the communication during their session on March 20, Wednesday.
