Computing – In Brief


Kenya: In a letter addressed to the ICT Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiangi by ICTAK Secretary General Kamotho Njenga, the lobby claims that the Board's appointment is illegal. In its application, ICTAK claims that paragraph 6 (2)(e) of Legal Notice 183 of 2013 provided that not more than 6 persons, not being public officers, be appointed, the Cabinet Secretary proceeded to include persons who are public officers as per under article 260 of the Constitution of Kenya. The lobby also takes issue with the fact that whereas paragraph 6 (3) of the Notice requires that members of the board be appointed at different times so that the respective expiry dates of their terms in office fall at different times , the cabinet secretary has gazetted the entire set of appointees on a single effective date.
