Jubilee MP wants Monica Juma kicked out of government

17 June 2015, 14:18 William Korir

Nairobi - A Jubilee Coalition MP has said that DR Monica Juma is not fit for any government office and that her current position as Interior Permanent Secretary should be re-advertised.

Administration and National Security Committee Chairman and Tiaty MP Asman Kamama says that the committee expects President Uhuru Kenyatta to nominate another person for the position.

" Dr Monica Juma is unfit to hold any office. We expect to vet a new person to take over as the Principal Secretary for Interior," he stated Wednesday.

The Security Committee rejected Juma’s nomination in protest, following a letter she wrote to the National Assembly discouraging MPs from visiting her office to ask for favours from the Interior Ministry.

In the October 2014 letter, the PS said MPs regularly visit her office to request for the transfer of some officers or retention of others in some stations.

Juma during vetting, had indicated she wrote the letter in good faith but Kamama says that he will not agree to a compromise over the matter.

" There will be a stalemate if the president resubmits her name."

According to parliamentary standing orders, the president can only re-submit Juma’s nomination to the house after 6 months.

He registered his disappointment with Juma's failure to pass her vetting test and is said to be exploring avenues to have her returned for vetting.

The CORD coalition also stated its disappointment and stated it would support efforts to have her re-submitted for vetting.

Kenyans held a protest march Tuesday in Nairobi to complain about the treatment Juma received from MPs but it now fully depends on the President and the move he wants to make going forward.
