The High Court has declared that President Kibaki breached the Constitution when he selected four nominees for justice and budget office jobs.

President Kibaki nominated Mr Alnashir Visram as CJ, Prof Githu Muigai as Attorney General, Mr Kioko Kilukumi for DPP and William Kirwa as controller of budget.Making the ruling, Justice Daniel Musinga also ordered that no no State organ should proceed with the process which sought to name a Chief Justice, an Attorney General, a Director of Public Prosecutions, and a Controller of Budget.

Eight non-governmental organisations had gone to court seeking to restrain any organ of state from carrying on with the process of approval and eventual appointment.

According to the organisations, the manner in which the President made the nominations in total disregard of provisions of the constitution requiring consultation and consideration of gender equity is likely to bring disunity in the country.
