Nairobi county government workers have today held protests in front of the supreme court before presenting their petition to the Judicial Service Commission JSC seeking removal of Lady Justice Maureen Onyango.
The group led by their Secretary General Benson Oriaro Oliang’a paraded at the gates of Supreme Court blowing trumpets and whistles as they sought audience with the JSC boss Chief Justice David Maraga.
‘‘We are a bitter lot today how can this judge have to rulings on one case, this is conflict of interest and we want JSC to investigate her conduct and remove her from this position ..this is a clear conflict of interest.’’Olianga said.
According to them Lady Justice Onyango first agreed with them that they indeed followed the due process in coming back with the Collective bargaining agreement CBA that was letter signed by the county government ,awarding employees 15% salary increment a ruling that was later quashed by the same judge.
‘’The Salaries and Remuneration Commission went back to court with same case and another ruling was given terming the CBA illegal.
SRC maintains that the wage bill of Nairobi City government is too much and additional 15% is not sustainable.
