- MPs are expected to go for a long recess from Thursday this week to February 2023.
- The House has lined up over 20 nominees for the approval hearings on Wednesday, just a day after the court lifted the order stopping their processing.
MPs have moved to a number of city hotels as they race against tight-timeliness to complete the vetting of Principal Secretary nominees.
The parliamentary departmental committees are today holed up in at least eight posh hotels in Nairobi to vet at least 20 nominees.
With the high number of nominees to be vetted in a single day, Parliament ran out of space to accommodate the committees.
MPs are expected to go for a long recess from Thursday until February 2023.
Some of the hotels procured include Eka hotel along Mombasa Road and the Norfolk hotel.
Others are Comfort Garden Hotel, Pride Inn hotel, Panari hotel, Hilton hotel, Trade Mark hotel and Ole Sereni Hotels.
The House has lined up over 20 nominees for the approval hearings on Wednesday, just a day after the court lifted the order stopping their processing.
Star has established of plans to have the reports ready tomorrow for approval before the House goes for December recess.
The court had earlier stopped the vetting of principal secretaries nominated by President William Ruto.
Law Society of Kenya and other civil society groups had filed cases challenging the 51 nominated people accusing Ruto of failing to meet the regional balance.
However, the court ruled that the case was premature, as the vetting process was still ongoing
Justice Nduma Nderi dismissed the consolidated cases, arguing that they had been filed prematurely. "Consolidated petitions are struck out for having been filed prematurely," ruled justice Nderi on November 29.
According to the judge, the petitioners should have waited until the vetting process was concluded before approaching the courts.
