In a casefiled by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), Judges Pauline Nyamweya,Weldon Korir and John Mativo will hear the case.
416 legislatorsincluding Senators and National Assembly Members had awarded themselves Ksh 250,000monthly in house allowances.
SRC opposed the move citing a public fund loss of Ksh 100 million monthly and Ksh 1.2 billion in a year.
In supportof SRC, the High Court granted order blocking the payment of the said houseallowances to the Members of Parliament.
A panel of judges was later recommended to hear the grievances terming it as a weighty matter.
It waslater revealed that parliamentary duties were affected due to the houseallowance thus the need for a quick hearing.
The Judges hearingthe case however made it clear that the legislators will have to wait for thehearing and verdict to be made.
