Mary Wambui’s appointment to Employment Authority halted

The former Othaya MP Mary  Wambui will have to wait for more days before she can occupy the newly constituted National Employment Authority office.

Wambui has been stopped in her tracks by a case that questions the logic behind her appointment.

The petitioner, Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association, through their lawyers Mwenje and Karanja Co. Advocates, argued that Wambui is not qualified for appointment as Chairperson as per provisions of Section 10 (2) of the National Employment Authority Act.

Justice Hellen Wasilwa ordered the suspension of the Gazette notice appointing Wambui pending hearing and determination of the petition.

The case filed by Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja.
