Thursday, September 28, 2023 –Former Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Cate Waruguru has revealed that, despite court orders barring CASs from taking their government positions, she is already working.
Speaking somewhere in a filled-up church service dubbed ‘Prophetic Night of Prayers signs & Wonders’, Ms Waruguru was heard revealing that she reports in the office at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs every day in the morning.
“Don’t rebuke politicians.
“When you see us politicians, don’t be quick to judge us. The battles we fight you have no idea because you’ve never been in the field especially in murky political waters.
“Despite us being politicians, we also take time to pray. I report at work Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the morning where I also hold prayers before commencing my official work,” she announced on church pulpit.
The vocal ex-Laikipia MP further said that she is a born-again Christian who devotes her full life to God for every day blessings.
Present in the church event was former Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura among a few other UDA-allied leaders.
Positions of CASs were, months ago, quashed by the court as unconstitutional with 50 plus positions meant for Ruto-Gachagua allies being rendered null and void.
Others who the head of State appointed in the CAS State position include Charles Kanyi Njaguar aka Jaguar, former KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion, ex-Nairobi County Governor Dr. Evans Kidero among many others.
The group was sworn into office with President William Ruto; in a function organised at the Statehouse, Nairobi.
Months later, a petition was lodged at the High Court by a private petitioner as well as the Kenya Law Society KLS that saw the positions declared unlawful.
At the Appellate Court where Dennis Itumbu had gone to overturn the High Court decision, the judges would again uphold the lower Court’s verdict.
Government, through Mr. Dennis Itumbi who was appointed as Chief Administrative Secretary ICT, immediately moved to the Supreme Court where the matter is expected to be finally settled.
The standoff, according to Chief Justice Martha Koome, will be adjudicated upon by more than three judges who will render a judgement either in favour or against the government.
In a recent political rally, President William Ruto promised the group that he still has a place for all of them in his government.
