Co-ordination on National Government not to renew embattled NGO board boss Fazul Mohammed.

BY NT CORRESPONDENT.

Employment and Labor relations court has ordered cabinet secretary Interior and Co-ordination on National Government not to renew embattled NGO board boss Fazul Mohammed tenure until matter filed in court over the same is heard and determined.

The orders have been issued by justice Hellen Wasilwa.

The judge further certified the case filed by Activist Okiya Omtata as urgent.

The matter will be mentioned on 18th of this month.

In the suit Omattah moved to court and faulted the cabinet secretary Interior and Co-ordination on National Government for failing to commence by 24th July of this year the process of competitively re-appointing or replacing Fazul tenure which he claims ended on 23rd of November .

He says that he is aggrieved that in defiance of the law, Fazul continues in office as the Executive Director of the NGO Co-ordination Board.

He claims that it will be irregular and contrary to both the constitution and statute to retain Fazul in the public service after the expiry of his contract.

According to Omtatah, cabinet secretary Interior and Co-ordination on National Government ought to have sent Fazul on terminal leave and appointed an acting Executive Director on or about 23rd June 2017 but failed to do so.

He now wants the court to prohibit the respondent from extending Fazul’s contractual tenure and order them to commence the recruitment of the new NGO boss according to the law.

According to Omtatah the right to fair labor practices will be violated to the extent that the impugned intended extension of Fazul tenure has blocked those members of the public.

According to Omtatah, cabinet secretary Interior and Co-ordination on National Government ought to have sent Fazul on terminal leave and appointed an acting Executive Director on or about 23rd June 2017 but failed to do so.
