The Employment and Labour Relations Court in Nakuru has ordered the Nyandarua County Government to pay Ksh.30 million to three former County Executive Committee members (CECs) for wrongful dismissal.
Delivering the judgement on Tuesday, justice Hellen Wasilwa noted that the county government violated the rights of the three former CECs; Simon Ng’ang’a, Faith Mbugua and Muthoni Wamuiya.
Each of the three petitioners will receive a compensation of Ksh.10 million.
Simon Ng’ang’a was the CEC for Water and Environment, Faith Mbugua was in charge of Education while Muthoni Wamuiya headed the Industrialization and Trade department.
Governor Kimemia dropped them from his Cabinet after failing to renew their contracts.
The three moved to court challenging their sacking which they termed as illegal and a violation of their right to fair administrative practices. They described the governor’s action as wrong and unfair, saying they learnt of it through the media.
However, the Governor defended his decision saying it was made to enhance service delivery.
