Title:Security of tenure of the East African civil servant
Author:Kiapi, Abraham
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:East Africa
civil servants
Abstract:One of the controversial issues facing lawyers in the commonwealth countries is whether the position of the civil servant is different from that of his counterpart in England, or whether or not the colonial position has been changed by legislation regulating the structure and control of the civil service. The English common law is that a civil servant can be dismissed at the pleasure of the Crown. Before independence, this common law that the servants of the colonial government held their offices at the pleasure of the Crown, applied in East Africa. Since independence there are constitutional provisions, statutes, regulations and administrative orders governing the civil service in East Africa. Do these written laws displace the right of the E.A. governments to dismiss at pleasure? This is examined in this paper. Ref.
