The hearing of a petition by two Bungoma residents for the dissolution of the County Public Service Board began yesterday.
Philip Wanyonyi and Oscar Musungu on Monday made their submission to the county assembly Committee on Public Administration chaired by Musikoma MCA Edward Simiyu.
The duo want the board disbanded for gross violation of the constitution and the County Government Act.
They have also accused the board of gross misconduct, conflict of interest and impunity in the appointment of the 45 ward administrators.
Wanyonyi, who chairs the Centre for Human Rights lobby group said the PSB engaged in chronism, tribalism, nepotism, conflict of interest, bias and abuse of office during the appointment of the ward administrators.
"The PSB has been conducting its affairs contrary to the objectives of devolution as stipulated in Article 174 of the constitution. They have failed to foster unity in the county by recognising ethnic diversity, to protect and promote the interests of minorities and the marginalised people," reads the submission.
The petitioners want the six board members including chairman Gideon Sirai and secretary Elizabeth Wanyonyi sent home by the county assembly.
The board, through lawyer John Muchele, presented its submission yesterday.
