Kenya Army, De­fence Coun­cil on the spot for not re­spond­ing to dis­missal case

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The Labour and Em­ploy­ment Re­la­tions Court in Nakuru has given the Kenya Army Ser­vice Com­man­der, the De­fence Coun­cil and the At­tor­ney Gen­eral the last ad­journ­ment in a case against them. Jus­tice Stephen Ra­dido or­dered the par­ties to file their re­ply­ing af­fi­davits be­fore Oc­to­ber 21. For­mer KDF em­ployee Jomo Moya sued to challenge his dis­missal, say­ing his rights were vi­o­lated. Ad­vo­cate Kipro­tich Kirui who rep­re­sented Kenya Army Ser­vice Com­man­der, the De­fence Coun­cil and the At­tor­ney Gen­eral said Army of­fi­cials sup­posed to swear the af­fi­davits are out of the coun­try. Wil­fred Ki­noso said the suit was filed on May 3 and given the time­line, the re­spon­dents have failed to com­ply. Moya says he was de­nied the op­por­tu­nity for rep­re­sen­ta­tion dur­ing the trial, a re­view of in­ves­ti­ga­tion find­ings against him and was not in­formed of the de­ci­sion to dis­miss him. He says he was wrong­fully charged with ne­glect of duty.
