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