Sonko's cabinet nominee rejects job

I don't want it

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s cabinet nominee Stella Bosire on Monday rejected the position offered to her as CEC of health in the county government.

Bosire failed to show up for the vetting process being done by the County Assembly Committee on appointments indicating that there were issues yet to be addressed especially Sonko’s style of management.

She clarified that the problems posed by the county boss included impromptu visits, sensationalising issues and lack of respect for professionalism.

“Unfortunately, it has come to that. I will serve Kenyans in other capacities,” stated Bosire.

Chege Mwaura, who is the Committee chairman of and acting assembly speaker noted that the nominee declined to be vetted as she did not submit her papers.

“We assume she is not interested in the position,” explained Mwaura.

Following the move by Bosire, the committee are left to vet four nominees who include: former nominated legislator Sanjeev Birdi (Environment), Economic Planning chief officer Winfred Kathangu (Finance) docket, Education chief officer Lucia Mulwa will head Education department and immediate acting county secretary Pauline Kahiga Waititu, is set to head the Public Service docket.

Sonko suffers blow after Janet Ouko quits

Governor Sonko had in February directed Nairobi County Assembly to fast track the vetting process.

“I want the assembly to fast track the vetting process of the five nominees so that they can start working,” stated Sonko.

The controversial governor had reshuffled his cabinet after Education CEC Janet Muthoni quit in January.

The embattled Ouko had stated that she resigned to various reasons and wanted to concentrated on more personal interests.
