LSK goes to court over counties row
BY ABIUD OCHIENG’ The Law Society of Kenya has asked a Nairobi court to interpret the Constitution and resolve the turf war between county commissioners and governors. At the centre of the controversy are constitutional provisions relating to the Provincial Administration and how it relates with devolved governments. LSK says that the Constitution requires that within five years after enactment, the national government shall restructure the system commonly known as the Provincial Administration to accord with and respect the system of the devolved government established under the Constitution.

GOVERNANCE | Dispute over devolved governments awaits legal interpretation

DAILY NATION Tuesday April 16, 2013

LSK seeks court intervention in dispute over county bosses
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 In a move to comply with the constitutional requirement, the national government enacted three laws namely; The County Government Act 2012, the Transition to Devolved Government Act 2012 and the National Government Co-ordination Act 2013. After the passing of the laws, the national government then appointed and legalised the offices of the Provincial Administration before the Constitution came into force and proceeded to appoint county commissioners, their deputies, assistant county commissioners, chiefs and assistant chiefs. These were taken as offices in the national government structure and the Transitional Authority has since appointed officers to fill the positions. Where the offices existed before, such as those of chiefs, the holders were deemed to have been appointed. LSK says that neither the functions nor duties of the public officers in the dispute were defined and that it is apparent that the officers undermine both the letter and spirit of the 2010 Constitution, which came into force after the March 4 election. The lawyers further say that while purporting to be exercising the role of the national government, the Transitional Authority and the Public Serv-

ice Commission have been and continue to usurp the functions of the county governments in disregard of the principal of devolution as set out in the Constitution. “They do this under the guise that they draw their power and jurisdiction from the Transition to Devolved Government Act, the National Government Co-ordination Act 2013 and The County Government Act 2012,” the lawyers’ petition says. LSK is seeking a declaration from the High Court that the creation of county commissioners, assistant county commissioners, chiefs and assistant chiefs as offices under the national government is inconsistent with the constitutional requirement that the national government shall structure the Provincial Administration to be in line with devolution. LSK is also seeking an order that section 15 and 20 of the National Government Co-ordination Act 2013 are inconsistent with the principles of devolution. The two sections that led to the appointments should be declared null and void and all the hirings made by the PSC and the Attorney General be declared invalid, says LSK. The lawyers are also seeking an order that the Provincial Administration purported to be structured under the National Government Co-ordination Act 2013 be deemed to be appointments under the County Government Act 2012 and accountable to the governor and County Assembly. “We feel there is need for the Honourable Court to exercise its jurisdiction under the provisions of the Constitution and provide the reliefs we are seeking in the petition,” LSK’s petition said. Two weeks ago, an induction workshop bringing together governors, the top leadership of the national government and leaders of commissions responsible for implementing the Constitution turned stormy after disagreements over the separation of powers between county and national governments. Governors walked out of the talks in protest.

E-TECHNOLOGY | Interactive education-resource website for high schools

Two students set up first learning site @eMasomo
Science Congress judges at county level not convinced portal was learners’ own work due to its ‘impressive nature’
BY BRIAN YONGA wo high school students have developed the country’s first interactive educationresource website, a platform for high school students. Brian Kirotich, 17, and Martin Siele, 18, both Form Fours at Alliance High School in Kiambu County are the brains behind eMasomo. The website contains a series of useful tools for high school students, among them syllabuses for the various subjects studied and past papers that students can use to prepare for their examinations. The portal developed under a meagre budget has impressive features as it provides free access to past Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination papers, eLearning videos on various topics, educational debates and an interactive online forum along with the entire high school curriculum review. They developed the site whose tagline is “read, lead, succeed” last December while on holiday, but due to financial constraints, it was launched on February 20. The students collected past papers from friends and their school’s examination department which has them in bulk. “We had been toying with the idea of creating an education portal for high school students, and we started developing it last year. It was ready in December, but due to lack of funds, launching it became a problem,” said Brian. They borrowed from their friends, drew from their pocket money savings and also took small loans to finance the project. “We used about Sh3,000 to host the website, another Sh2,500 to purchase the software and also Sh2,000 to scan the papers; together with other miscellaneous expenses, we incurred a lot,” said Martin. Their limited budget hampered them from doing much, but they still went ahead and put out what could turn out to be an important education tool. The portal, according to them, is also aimed at diverting students from unproductive and negative Internet use, as well as encouraging the adoption of ICT among students in line with Vision 2030. After its launch, Brian and Martin were recognised in school, with the principal acknowledging their efforts in front of their peers. “He introduced us to the whole BACKGROUND

school during a school parade. Other students cheered. The feeling was awesome,” Brian recalls. After the accolades, the two decided to enrol their project into the Science Congress, where it emerged the best at the school, zonal, district and county levels. However, this did not come without drama. The judges at the county level were not convinced the portal was their own work due to its “impressive nature”. “We had to prove it was our creation, as the judges could not believe students could come up with such a site. So we had to log

in, edit some material and apply the changes. Fnally they believed us”, Martin told the Nation. The project now heads to the regional level on May 27, before the students target the national level. “We hope to reach the national level and hopefully if we win, represent the country in the international stage in South Africa,” said Martin. Their site is also set to be showcased by Afriapps, a technology site that showcases new apps and inventions on the continent. A visit to the site reveals a number of features. It has educational debates and an interactive online forum aimed at helping students study and also learn from others. It also provides the latest news on education, and for Form Four students, gives them a countdown to the national exam. The two spend at least two days a week working on new material for the website, but have to balance between their studies and running the site.

As of now there is no education portal for high school students in Kenya. Has teachers as its target audience. Kenya National Examinations Council website: Largely a functional website with little focus on students’ needs. A research only platform mainly for students in higher learning institutions. mPrep: A mobile SMS-based study system for primary school students and also involves payment through prepaid airtime. e-Limu: An organisation offering tablets to primary school students to aid their learning.
“We ensure we don’t neglect our studies. This site is it is not commercial,” says Martin. Two years ago they developed a musical and entertainment website but had to shut it down because it required much time. “Emasomo is different because you don’t need to be updating news regularly; it is more of an interactive learning tool,” Martin added. They hope to use the holiday to upgrade and also add new content to the site to make education more interesting.

PARLIAMENT | Mwingi Central MP rejects proposal to step down for former VP who was proposed for Minority Leader post

Plan to get Kalonzo in House hits snag

plan for former vice-president Kalonzo Musyoka to return to Parliament as Minority Leader hit a hitch last evening after the MP identified to step down for him rejected the deal. Cord senators and MPs came up with the plan during a retreat in Naivasha ahead of today’s address to Parliament by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu was identified as the one to step down for Mr Musyoka to pave the way for his return to lead the opposition in Parliament. Mr Mutambu shot out of the meeting to protest against the move to have him vacate his seat. “I will not accept this. They are asking for too much. No I will not allow this to happen,” he said. The coalition picked a committee of five, led by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula, to plan Mr Musyoka’s return to Parliament. Members of the committee include Senators David Musila (Kitui), Johnstone Muthama (Machakos), James Orengo (Siaya) and Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini). Later, Mr Mutambo denied reports that he had agreed to step down in favour of the Wiper leader. “I have not been approached nor have I been asked to step down. I was voted in by the people of Mwingi Central and I have to consult them before making any political move,” he said. But Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze said the matter would


be deliberated on further today at a Wiper Democratic Party Parliamentary Group meeting. At the end of the meeting last evening, Cord MPs decided that Mr Nyenze would hold brief for Mr Musyoka pending plans to have him re-elected. “Before Mr Musyoka joins the National Assembly, Mr Francis Nyenze will act as the minority leader,” a statement read by Mr Dalmas Otieno said. Mr Wetang’ula was picked as Leader of Minority in the Senate as previously agreed. Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo was chosen as the Deputy Minority Leader in the National Assembly. Mr Muthama was elected the Cord Senate whip while Malindi MP Gideon Mung’aro was picked as the coalition’s National Assembly Chief Whip. At the meeting, Wajir Senator Hassan Abdurrahman was picked as the deputy Leader of the Minority in the Senate. Former prime minister Raila Odinga — who attended the meeting — said he would play his politics from outside the two Houses. On the government side, President Kenyatta and his deputy, Mr William Ruto, held two separate meetings at State House with Jubilee Coalition MPs and senators to discuss the government agenda. The Jubilee senators elected Prof Kindiki Kithure (TharakaNithi) as Leader of the Majority in the Senate and Mr Charles Keter (Kericho) as Deputy Leader. Jubilee also lived up to its pledge and allocated some of the prime seats in both Houses to its affiliate members who signed a
