The Union of Kenya Civil Servants is set to hold fresh elections on August 31 after the labour court faulted a rival faction for causing disturbances during the AGM held at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi a few weeks ago, causing the abandonment of the exercise.  

Following the prolonged disturbances by a faction allied to national treasury Justus Mugo who was said to have “sensed defeat”, Labour officials who were supervising the exercise were forced to post-phone the exercise and the matter moved to court.

According to union secretary-general Mr Tom Odege the union AGM was disrupted by elements bankrolled by a “senior” politician keen on controlling the public servants ahead of the 2022 general elections.

Mr Odege is widely expected to retain his post, he blamed his rivals for coming up with “baseless” allegations after sensing all their plans had failed and faced imminent defeat. He said that he has “no problem with court ruling” but was ready to face his rivals who have become “hirelings” of a senior politician opposed to the “handshake”

“We know who their masters are and who is financing them to disrupt the operations of the union”, he said warning that civil servants are supposed to be “loyal” to their employer and serve without discrimination.
