Residents read politics after she branded the sanitizers with her image. “As the Kenya ministry of Health under Jubilee government is trying to find more ways of curbing the ongoing widespread of Covid-19, I’m more focused and determined in ensuring all industrial centres, car and motorbike stages and parkings are equipped with sanitizers as one way of maintaining high hygiene,” she said. On one of the brands, the politician wrote: “stay safe beyond corona” followed by her image then her name at the bottom.
To many, Kering who boasts to be close to deputy president William Ruto is using the crisis to rebrand herself politically ahead of 2022.

Ford-K to discipline rebel MCAs harshly – Weekly Citizen

Published

Loading...

Ford-Kenya party has vowed to take action against its MCAs who were at the forefront of the impeachment motion of its leaders. The impeachment saw majority leader Florence Wekesa and majority chief whip Evelyn Mutyembu toppled. They were replaced by Joseph Nyongesa as the majority leader, Tongaren MCA Elizabeth Tindi as his deputy, Meshack Simiyu alias Museveni as the majority chief whip and Bungoma Township MCA Joseph Maguda as the deputy chief whip. However, Ford Kenya party secretary-general Eseli Simiyu says the impeachment is illegal as there was no wide consultation before the action was reached. Eseli stated that there was no Gazette Notice giving MCAs a go ahead to make any changes in the assembly dominated by FK leaders.

The Tongaren MP says he wrote to the assembly speaker Emmanuel Situma to stop the changes because the top organ wasn’t consulted. Eseli named the rebel MCAs Elizabeth Tindi (Tongaren), Joseph Nyongesa (majority leader), Joseph Kawa (Bokoli) and Meshack Museveni (majority chief whip) as those who were not paying a party subscription fee of Sh5,000 a month. He says that he has written to them to pay their subscription up to May or else the party top organs will meet to decide their future in the party. “We don’t need people who aren’t loyal to the party! We will need to reorganize ourselves. The removal of the former leaders can affect the party effectiveness in 2022 and there is no legality in their removal. Wekesa of Kimilili and Mutyembu from Sirisia, should not be undermined,” he said. Eseli says that the change of leadership needs to be done in house meetings. He says he has been intimidated and blackmailed and even tried to be bribed to give in to some burning issues affecting the party and the county government.

Vihiga county public service board has initiated a process to surcharge three senior officers Sh300,480 paid to a person who was not an employee of the county, for a period of three months. In a letter written by the board’s CEO Vincent M’maitsi that leaked to the press and addressed to the acting county secretary and head of public service, Philip Gavuna, it has indicated that he and two other officers will be surcharged in equal measures. “At its meeting of March 3, 2020, under MIN:11/3/03/2020, the county public service board reviewed the situation in the case of one Henry Anjila and noted that he had been paid arrears of three months, totalling to Sh300,480, whereas he was not an employee of the county of Vihiga,” part of the letter indicates.

It further notes that the board resolved that the money must be recovered and that the officers who had been directly involved in the matter be surcharged the amount. Other officers to be surcharged together with Gavuna include Pamela Busungu, chief officer in the Department of Agriculture and John Naviava, secretary to the board. Anjila is purportedly said to have been brought into the county, through an inter-county transfer from Garissa county. He was employed as a principal livestock officer in May last year after he sent an application letter to Gavuna through Ms. Busungu.
