MP, Alice Wahome, seeks to bar Badi from cabinet meetings

MP, Alice Wahome has moved to court to stop Nairobi Metropolitan Services Boss, Mohammed Badi from attending Cabinet Meetings.

The Kandara Legislator moved to court today seeking a reversal of the Executive Order that saw The President let Badi attend the cabinet meeting.

Move ‘illegal, unconstitutional and void’

In the petition, Wahome termed the move to include Badi in the Cabinet meetings as ‘illegal, unconstitutional and void.”

Additionally, Wahome cited the Attorney General, Secretary to the Cabinet and Badi himself as the first, second and third respondents.

Wahome also cited the move to include Badi in the cabinet meeting as in violation of Article 152(1) of the constitution. The Article says that the cabinet will consist of the President, Deputy President, Attorney General and the Cabinet Secretaries.

“The 3rd respondent has not been appointed to the cabinet as provided for in the Constitution and his appointment is illegal and void,” Wahome said in the petition.

Indeed, Wahome referred to Badi as a ‘stranger’ to the cabinet.

Executive Order Number 3

In the move that saw Badi swear an oath of secrecy, the President used Executive Order No.3 of 2020.

“His Excellency the President this morning witnessed the taking and subscription to the Oath of Secrecy by Major-General of the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS), a requirement of all persons who attend Cabinet Meetings or participate in the conduct of Cabinet Business. The Director-general shall henceforth attend all meetings of Cabinet and its committees, pursuant to Executive Order No.3 of 2020.” The statement from State House said on September 10th.

Military appointments worry Kenyans

The move to include Badi in cabinet meetings had a few Kenyans smelling something fishy. This is because President Kenyatta has appointed military generals in several high-profile positions.

A further move to shift the Kenya Meat Commission from the Agriculture and Livestock Ministry left many Kenyans baffled.

The move was apparently to improve the management of the struggling parastatal.
