What you need to know:

  • Justice Nzioki wa Makau said the administrators should have presented the matter to the Public Service Commission (PSC) before moving to court.
  • The claimants also told the court that due process was followed when they were employed by the administration of former Governor Samuel Ragwa as there was an advertisement and interviews.
  • The county told the court that in August 2017, a head count revealed the village administrators were unqualified, necessitating action.

The Labour court has dismissed a case by 130 village administrators who challenged Tharaka-Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki's decision to sack them on grounds of a bloated wage bill.
