CBC Abolishment Case Lawyer grows Cold Feet.A lawyer who objected to the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) now wants her name removed from court documents.Esther Ang’awa, attorney for former LSK President Nelson Havi, has informed the High Court that she is no longer interested in the case.Havi told a three-judge bench comprised of Hedwig Ong’undi, Anthony Ndung’u, and Anthony Mrima that she has grown cold feet after being allegedly profiled by the government.Havi now wishes to take Ang’awa’s place as petitioner, claiming that the case is of public interest.“Some of these people do not know what state profile is. What we claim is not a child’s play. There is no application for withdrawal of the case but a substitution. The petitioner is not interested in pursuing the petition. Public interest cannot be trivialised,” argued Havi.The Ministry of Education, Teachers Service Commission, Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, Kenya National Union of Teachers, and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, as well as Education CS George Magoha and his counterpart from the Ministry of Interior, Dr Fred Matiang’i, fought the application vehemently.They argued in their separate responses that because Ms Ang’awa sued in her personal capacity, her lawyer could not represent her.In his response, principal state counsel Emmanuel Bitta argued that MsAng’awa had not sworn an affidavit in support of her allegation.He represents KICD and the Ministry of Education in this case.TSC lawyer Calvin Anyuor told the court that because Ms Ang’awa was no longer interested in the case, the only option was to withdraw it.Meanwhile, senior attorneys Fred Ngatia and Phillip Murgor argued that the case should be dismissed or withdrawn.Ngatia, who represents Dr Matiang’i, stated that because the facts of the case were only known to Ms Ang’awa, her name cannot be substituted for that of her lawyer.Murgor urged the court to dismiss the case and allow CBC to proceed. Anga’wa, he claims, should pay for the responses filed in the case.CBC Abolishment Case Lawyer grows Cold Feet.
