ICT and Communication CS Joe Mucheru has revoked the appointment of Jared Peter Odoyo Kwaga into the Board of the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication.
Mucheru made the revocation through a Gazette Notice dated 11th February after a massive uproar online.
This is after Kwaga was implicated in a Corruption scandal in Migori County that led to the loss of over two Billion shillings.
Kwaga’s assets were frozen by the High Court after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission filed a suit to recover assets and money totalling to 1.9 Billion shillings from him and six of his relatives among them his mother.
Kwaga is also a very close friend to Migori Governor Okoth Obado who is also being investigated for Graft and murder of a University Student.
Kwaga has also appeared in an appointment list by President Kenyatta dated 8th February.
In other news, Activist Okiya Omtatah has filed a suit seeking to ensure that Political poll losers do not get parastatal positions in government.
In a law suit seen by NT.co.ke, Okiya has argued that the positions are not filled in a free fair manner and in the merit as expected by the Rule of Law.
