The high court has revoked the appointment of the 47 county commissioners by President Kibaki.High court Judge Mumbi Ngugi in her ruling said the president had erred in the appointment of the commissioners as he had over looked several articles in the constitution.Justice Ngugi said that the president had failed to observe the constitution which had clearly outlined that no one gender should occupy more than two thirds of any given government appointments.She said the appointments were don without consultation and concurrence with the Prime Minister  Raila Odinga.The judge said the appointments lacked a competitive and participatory selection process which involves public participation in the process of picking candidates.
