Governor sacks his aide for seeking to unseat him

10 June 2016, 07:05 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Laikipia Governor Joshua Irungu has sacked the County Secretary, John Mwaniki for expressing interest in the governorship seat.

Mwaniki was instructed to hand over the office to the director of Planning, Charles Nderitu who held the position initially.

The Chief of staff and Governor’s personal assistant, John Wambugu said Mwaniki had persisted in undermining the appointing authority and was sent home following residents’ outcry.

“It reached a point where the Governor had to act and asked the county public service board to investigate him,” Wambugu said.

“The Governor had warned him several times that being the senior most public servant in the County he should desist from campaigns while in the office because it even contravenes the constitution,” Wambugu added.

When journalists went to Mwaniki’s office, they found carpenters changing padlocks of the office door.

However, Mwaniki denied that he had declared interest in the Governor’s seat saying his sacking was part of a plot to marginalize public servants from Laikipia East.

“His administration does not give a chance to able people and they were particularly unhappy with the way I was solving issues surrounding County workers especially remittance of statutory deductions like NSSF,” he said.

He said he had always served the County residents well, adding that there has never been any complaint against the office.
