They told the court that a meeting organised by National Officials of KSP, that is Dr Daniel Nyamogo Sagwe being the chairman of the society did not fall under organization’s constitution of the 2010.
The petitioners claim that the current officials have been in office for over six years contrary to what is provided for and they have allegedly changed the constitution to allow them stay in office longer in total violation of the rights of other members.
“KSP was registered as a successor to the East African Association of Physiotherapists on June 8 1998, it has membership of 2300, who should be consulted on matters pertaining to their affairs” the petitioners contend.
They say that the officials have infringed their Fundamental Right as contained in the Bill of Rights under article 23 of the constitution 2010.
The CEC intends to conduct elections without following the principles laid down under the constitution, which the court is being asked to restrain the defendants.
The judge directed parties to respond to the petition and the matter be mentioned on May 8 2019 to confirm compliance.
This decision means that no elections can be conducted till the matter is heard and determined.
