Church wants decision on religious clothing invalidated

Trustees of the Methodist Church have petitioned the Supreme Court to invalidate the Court of Appeal decision that all students in public schools should be allowed to wear religious items of clothing in addition to their specified school uniforms.

The Church is challenging the verdict by Appellate Judges Philip Waki, Roselyne Nambuye and Patrick Kiage delivered on August 9, 2016 in which they declared that students deserved to obey their religious requirements in accordance with their constitutional rights, which must be respected and protected.

Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu (pictured), sitting with Justices Mohamed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang, Njoki Ndung’u and Isaac Lenaola yesterday postponed the hearing of the appeal and directed lawyers Kibe Mungai and Henry Kurauka, for the church to provide all the necessary documents to the Attorney General and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to facilitate the hearing of the matter.
