The High Court ruled on Tuesday that President Uhuru Kenyatta cannot be sued as the Constitution grants him immunity in legal proceedings.
Justice Chacha Mwita ordered the name of the President struck out forthwith from a suit filed by activist Okiya Omtatah regarding the office of the Chief Administrative Secretary.
Omtatah sued Uhuru, the Public Service Commission, the AG and the Speaker of the National Assembly over the creation of the CAS post and subsequent and appointments.
The activist had accused the President and the PSC of breaching the Constitution by creating the position without public participation.
He faulted Uhuru for not considering implications on the wage bill and wanted the court to find him accountable for violating the Constitution.
