CORD rows with Jubilee over state jobs
20 August 2013, 09:09
Nairobi - CORD leaders allege that there is a systematic purge of parastatal bosses and skewed appointments by the Jubilee government, to pave way for President Uhuru Kenyatta's TNA and William Ruto's URP to take up the jobs under their pre-election power sharing agreement.
The claims were made by the Minority Whip Jakoyo Midiwo following the recent changes at state corporations, whereby at least 11 Managing directors have recently left office either after their terms expired or their holders were promoted to Cabinet or forced out due to alleged misconduct, The Standard reports.
Opposition MPs alleged bias in the temporary appointments, which prompted the the chairman of parliamentary Public Investment Committee (PIC) Adan Keynan to say that his team would investigate the sackings and replacements in the State Corporations once Parliament resumes in September 17.
