"Dont sleep on job!" - Nyachae cautions presidential advisors

14 January 2014, 21:10

Bungoma - Presidential advisors have been asked to give the head of state sound advice and ensure that  all appointments he makes conforms to the details of the law.

Speaking to journalists in Bungoma on Tuesday, Charles Nyachae the chairperson of the Constitution Implementation Commission (CIC) who is on a five day tour of the county said embarrassing mistakes the president has made., Two of his appointments were revoked after it emerged that they were irregularly made will be avoided in the coming  future if the advisors took their work seriously.

Controversy recently greeted the appointment of former presidential candidate Abduba Dida as the chairperson of the Constituency Development Fund Board which was revoked after it emerged the president appointed him illegallly.  Former Naivasha MP John Mututho’s appointment as the Nacada boss was also revoked and later reversed by parliament.

“The persons tasked with the duty of advising our president should be very careful in as far as appointments are concerned . They must ensure that any kind of appointment conforms to the law, and all details of the law are completely covered,” said Nyachae, who held a meeting with Governor Ken Lusaka and his county executive team, and later met members of the local county assembly.

The CIC boss,who has planned a series of meetings in the county this week to find out how devolution is picking up , said the embarrassing blunders by the president on the appointments of the duo , which has already put the advisors on the spot, should serve as a lesson to them , so that the same mistakes are not repeated in the subsequent appointments.

" Like every other worker, who is paid by the taxpayer, They need to wake up, and stop sleeping on the job," said Nyachae.
