EACC boss quits
On to new things!
In a report by Standard, Mubea tendered in his resignation last week, as he prepares to take up the ambassadorial appointment by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
A memo by the EACC Acting human Resource Director Ellyjoy Bundi announced Mubea’s departure alongside Finance and Planning Director Jennifer Kimani.
“This is to communicate the following staff changes. Mubea- deputy CEO Technical services has resigned from the commission with effect from July 1, following his appointment as ambassador,” read part of the memo.
Kimani’s contract expired on June 30.
In May, President Uhuru Kenyatta made several changes in his administration where he appointed 15 senior government officials as Ambassadors and High Commissioners.
"The President has approved the promotion and appointment of 15 serving to the position of Ambassador in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” read a statement from the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
In the appointments, Mubea was appointed Kenyan Ambassador to Ireland.
He was later on vetted by the National Assembly Defense and Foreign Relations Committee chaired by Kajiado South MP Katoo Ole Metito and was approved, alongside six other appointees.
