• Kindiki said the three CASs under his ministry will be responsible for state departments under the Ministry of Interior and National Administration.
• They include former Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai, former nominated Senator Millicent Omanga and Amb. Mohamud Saleh.
Interior CS Kithure Kindiki on Monday assigned roles to newly sworn-in Chief Administrative Secretaries, even after the court stopped them from assuming office.
In a statement, Kindiki said the three CASs under his ministry will be responsible for state departments under the Ministry of Interior and National Administration.
They include former Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai, ex-nominated Senator Millicent Omanga and Amb Mohamud Saleh.
Kindiki said they will assume responsibilities once the ongoing court case is determined.
Tunai will be responsible for the State Department for Internal Security and National Administration, while Omanga will oversee reforms in the Civil Registration Services, National Registration Bureau and Department of Refugee Affairs, under the State Department for Immigration and Citizen Services.
Amb Saleh will oversee reforms in the Kenya Prison Service, Borstal Institutions and the Probation Department, under the State Department for Correctional Services.
On Friday, the High Court barred the appointed 50 CASs from being in office pending the determination of an application filed by the Law Society of Kenya and Katiba Institute.
Justice Hedwig Ong'undi also temporarily stopped the appointees from earning any salary, remuneration or benefits.
Through lawyer Dan Okemwa, LSK and Katiba said the nomination goes against a letter to the chairperson of the Public Service Commission from the Head of Public Service in October last year requesting for a vacancy declaration of 23 vacancies for CASs.
The two accused PSC of abdicating its roles which they say has enabled the President to establish 27 additional offices in violation of the constitution.
The CAS were sworn in on Thursday, last week.
