Mr. Githu Muigai has moved to court to challenge the formation of People’s Assembly.
Under a certificate of emergency, Muigai argues that the assembly issue is not anchored in law.
15 counties have so far passed the motions and the government seems to be panicky.
“The establishment of the People’s Assemblies by the aforementioned county assemblies is an illegality as the institution is alien to the Constitution and is neither within the framework of the County Governments Act or any other legislation,” the court papers read.
What’s obvious is that in the public domain, the government is putting up a show of bravado but behind the scenes, panick has rented more space than is comfortable.
