The Employment and Labor Relations Court has temporarily stopped Labor CS Phyllis Kandie from reinstating former NSSF managing trustee Richard Langat.

Langat had just resumed office amid protest by the by Central Organization of Trade Unions which had questioned his credibility.

COTU moved to court under a certificate of urgency arguing that resumption into office will run afoul of the basic tenets of the establishment of the fund as provided in Sec 3 of the NSSF Act 2013.

In the suit, the union says the three should not be allowed to return to work as they are facing corruption allegation cases.

The matter will be heard inter-party on the 10th of next month.

Elsewhere Budalang’i Member of Parliament Ababu Namwamba petition seeking to be reinstated as Public Accounts Committee chairman has been dismissed.

High court judge Justice Weldon Korir ruled that the committees are operational functions of Parliament and its rules should be adhered to.

Namwamba moved to court to contest his removal saying Parliament carried out an illegality by purporting to remove him from the powerful committee.

At the Kibera Law courts John Omolle was arraigned in the court for impersonating as a Nairobi West MCA.

John Omolle did not, however take plea to the charges of impersonation and theft as the charge sheet was found to be defective.

The prosecution alleges that   Omolle went to a Shop in T-Mall and impersonated as the MCA of the area and further stole a handbag from the shop that had over 70,000 Shillings.

The case will be mentioned on Thursday this week when he is expected to take plea.
