In his petition, Bernard Mburu, noted that Nyoro has been violating the law by making unnecessary appointments contrary to the county law.

Mburu argued that the decision on September 6, 2019, by Nyoro to reshuffle the county executive committee members was illegal.

According to him, the court should issue conservatory orders to stop the Deputy Governor from assuming the powers of the governor in Kiambu county.
