They claim that the appointments were made as a loyalty reward to the individuals and the appointees will not view the appointments as a national duty hence they will easily engage in graft, nepotism and cronyism

They group has asked the State Law office to nullify the Special Kenya Gazette Notice  on appointment of Chairpersons and directors of State Corporations for being done in complete breach of the Constitution.

The appointments will undermine the President’s  ongoing national efforts to fight graft, they claim.
