The High Court has ordered the government to reinstate security detail for Governor Anyang' Nyong'o and his deputy Mathews Owili until a case in which the duo filed against the State is heard and determined.

Justice Tripsisa Cherere further ordered the two county bosses file an application seeking to enjoin a similar case filed by Homa Bay Town MP Opondo Kaluma in Nairobi involving a number of opposition leaders, which is due on February 19.


The judge said it would be a waste time for the courts and parties who have filed the same application demanding their security back.

"The two are at liberty to enjoin in the other case in Nairobi. This will also prevent any conflicting decisions which could embarrass the judiciary in the end," Justice Cherere said on Monday.

The two county bosses had sued the Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and the Attorney General Githu Muigai after their four security officers were withdrawn on January 31.
