The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) is threatening to go to court to stop the nomination of 50 Chief Administrative Secretaries by President William Ruto.

LSK President Eric Theuri says the nomination of 50 CASs is against what the Head of Public Service applied for and got from the Public Service Commission - 23 declared vacancies in that position.

Theuri, who was speaking in Mombasa on Saturday, said the expenditure that comes with the extra CASs should be channelled to fight hunger and to implement development projects.

“What the President did is breaking the law. We will be in court on Monday...when we were in court PSC said they wanted to create 23 positions under the public participation and that was the maximum, we wonder why the President chose to nominate 50...this for us is politically motivated and not following the law,” said the LSK boss.
