A staff restructuring exercise at the Kenya Railways Corporation has been stopped.
This is pending the hearing and determination of a case filed in court.
The High Court has also suspended an advert by the railway coop of March 6 2018 announcing fifteen vacancies at the Corporation.
Justice Hellen Wasilwa also certified the matter as urgent.
Rights crusader Okiya Omtatah claims that the advertised vacancies were subjectively created through the irregular, hurried, arbitrary and opaque implementation of the staff restructuring exercise skewed to suit preferred individuals.
“That the restructuring process has been used to victimize many innocent staff members and that the outcome of whole process is predetermined to favor certain individuals,” claims Omtatah
