Applications for Prerogative orders must be made in the name of the Republic

Christopher Musau v Attorney General

Miscellaneous Civil Application No 90 of 2007

High Court at Nairobi

GV Odunga J

October 22, 2013

Issues

  1. Whether applications for prerogative orders must be made in the name of the republic at the instance of the person affected by the action or omission in issue.
  2. What is the proper procedure to commence judicial review proceedings?

 

Civil practice and procedure – judicial review – prerogative orders – application for prerogative orders –  failure to apply for prerogative orders in the name of the republic – whether such application could be entertained – whether such omission could be cured under the provisions of article 159(2)(d) of the Constitution – Constitution of Kenya, 2010 article 159 (2) (d) –Civil Procedure Rules order 53.

 

Held

  1. Prerogative orders are issued in the name of the crown and applications for such orders must be correctly intituled and accordingly, the orders of certiorari, mandamus or prohibition are issued in the name of the Republic and applications therefore are made in the name of the Republic at the instance of the person affected by the action or omission in issue.
  2. Judicial review proceedings are commenced by the Notice of Motion and not the Chamber Summons. The Chamber Summons is simply an application for leave or permission to commence judicial review proceedings and whereas on the filing of the Notice of Motion the Chamber Summons is subsumed or submerged in the Motion, it is the Motion that originates the judicial review application.
  3. The proceedings under Order 53 can only start after leave has been obtained and the proceedings are then originated by the notice of motion filed pursuant to the leave granted. It would be somewhat ridiculous to bring the application for leave by way of an originating summons and once the leave is granted, the originating summons is then swallowed up or submerged in the notice of motion.
  4. The application for leave does not commence judicial review until such permission is granted to institute appropriate Judicial Review application and since the defendant/respondent herein is not the entity against whom the orders are properly sought, this is not the kind of mistake that can be cured under the provisions of article 159(2)(d) of the Constitution.

Notice of motion struck out
