The Industrial Court has also reinstated Cornelius Ogutu as a board member, after he was sacked by Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi last year/file

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 11 – The Industrial Court on Wednesday revoked the appointment Charity Seleina Kisoto as the chairperson of the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) Board of Trustees and reinstated Adan Mohammed as the head.

The Industrial Court has also reinstated Cornelius Ogutu as a board member, after he was sacked by Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi last year.

The court ruled that “pending hearing and determination of the suit Gazette Notice No 725 of February 6, 2015 in which Ms Kisoto was appointed is “stayed.”

Justice J. Radido has also restrained the Cabinet Secretary from removing any other incumbent member of the trustee board or in any way revoking earlier appointments.

The turn of events comes in the wake of a case filed by Ogutu challenging Kisoto’s appointment in which Kambi is cited as the first respondent.

The Court ruled that pending hearing and determination of the suit Gazette Notice No 725 of February 6 2015 in which Kisoto was appointed is “stayed.”

Justice Radido set the next hearing of the matter for February 24 when all parties mentioned are expected to appear before the court for an inter-parties hearing.

The appointment of Kisoto, who was seconded by the Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) to the workers’ pension body, took effect from February 2, 2015.

She had joined the board in place of Ogutu who had been dropped after he fell out with COTU in 2013.
