Court to rule on Omtatah case contesting hiring of NCIC commissioners


The High Court is on Monday next week set to rule on the case filed by activist Okiya Omtatah which led to a stop in the recruitment of new NCIC commissioners. The former commissioners included Francis Kaparo, who was the chairman, Irene Wanyoike (deputy), Belinda Ochiel, Adan Abdi Mohammed, and Roba Sharamo. But Omtatah moved to court to stop the hiring on grounds the recruitment ought to be carried out by the Public Service Commission, not Parliament. His contention is that the NCIC is a not a constitutional commission and hence falls under the PSC. It violates the principle of separation of powers and comprises the Parliament's oversight mandate over the Executive, he said in court.
