The Employment and Labour Relations Court has thrown out a case challenging the provision of the Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) position.
The case had been filed by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) in October last year.
Justice Monicah Mbaru ruled that the decision of the Public Service Commission (PSC) to create the position is lawful.
The Commission’s Chairperson Anthony Muchiri posted vacancies for CASs in October last year.
“The Public Service Commission hereby invites applications from suitably qualified persons who wish to be considered for appointment,” said Muchiri.
Eligibility for the position is that one must be a Kenyan citizen and should hold a bachelor’s degree from a university recognized in Kenya.
They must also demonstrate the ability to manage the administrative-political interface as well as possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
One also needs to meet the requirements of chapter six of the constitution.
