On Wednesday, December 10, 2008, the 17 Kenyans filed High Court Petition No. 769 of 2008, at the Nairobi Law Courts, requesting that the PSC be scrapped for violating the Constitution of the Republic of Kenya, and for flouting the republican ethics that prohibit public officials from using their offices for unjust enrichment and other forms of personal gain.

The Parliamentary Service Commission has appointed Mr. Paul Muite (immediate former Kabete MP) and Mr. Phiroze Nowrjee to represent them.

The case comes up again for mention on March 12, 2009, at the Nairobi High Court, Chamber 35, at 9.00 am.

You can lend your support to the case, by signing up to be a petitioner here. You can also find out more about the case including filed affidavits at the link.
