Outrage as CS Mucheru appoints dead man to plum gov’t job

Kenyans on Twitter have been angered after Information Communication and Technology (ICT) cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru re-appointed a dead man to serve as a member of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB)

Mucheru re-appointed Robert Kochalle who passed on in May 2018 while he still served in the board alongside Gathoni Kung’u and Nereah Aluoch.

Kenyans then expressed their disappointment with the appointment by the CS as they went on to bash him.

KFCB Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua however, came to CS Mucheru’s defense saying that it was a minor mistake that would be corrected, but none would hear of that. He went on to say that the issue was being blown out of proportion.

Small issue being blown out of proportion. The Board presented the notification to the Ministry for replacement and inadvertently he was reappointed. It was not CS Mucheru's mistake at all as the conversation started when KFCB was under Ministry of Sports & Culture,” tweeted Mutua.

Here are reactions from Kenyans;
