The Employment and Labour Court has stopped the appointments of Francis Mut haura and four others to the KRA Board.
The other four include; Charles Makori Omanga, Mukesh Shah, Leonard Ithau and Susan Mudhune.
Justice Byrum Ongaya issued the order pending the hearing and determination of a suit filed against them.
This comes after activist Okiya Omtatah moved to court seeking orders to stop their appointment to the office tomorrow following the Gazette notice issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta on May 25.

Omtata said,"The presidentâs decision to handpick and appoint people to public offices is a nullity in law to the extent that it is inconsistent with express provisions of the Constitution of Kenya and statute which require public offices to be filled through open, fair, competitive, and merit-based but inclusive processes of recruiting and appointing persons into offices in the public service. "
He also said that the impugned appointments to the KRA Board were in violation of the Constitution.
