The Employment and Labour Relations Court has barred Nyamira county from vetting Deputy Governor nominee James Gesami.
Justice Maureen Onyango has temporarily stopped Governor Amos Nyaribo from presenting the name of the Gesami to the County Assembly for vetting.
“The respondents are hereby restrained from presenting the name of the Gesami to the County Assembly for vetting pending inter-parties hearing of the application,” the order reads.
In the case Vincent Omao has moved to court seeking to stop Gesami’s nomination as the next deputy governor.
Omao has sued Nyaribo, County Secretary, Clerk of the County Assembly and the Speaker.
Gesami was nominated last week by Nyaribo who took over office following the death of Governor John Nyangarama.
