Economist David Ndii has said that he still remains as a professional referee for Interior CS Fred Matiang’i despite their sharply differing ideological differences.
I am still Matiang’i’s referee on his CV – David Ndii
Ndii describes Matiang'i as a top notch Kenyan
Ndii made the remark while questioning why professionals with high qualifications continued to work for President Uhuru Kenyatta whom he termed as incompetent and indisciplined.
The economist had engaged a user who wondered why President Kenyatta continued to tolerate lackluster Cabinet Secretaries.
“The puzzle is the other way round i.e. why these accomplished Kenyans have allowed @Ukenyatta to destroy them. With his CV none would have hired him in middle management in the organizations they have led. How do they tolerate his indiscipline and incompetence?” Ndii posed.
The Oxford-educated economist went to list several Cabinet Secretaries that he recognised as exemplary professionals working for “rogue regime”.
East African Affairs CS Adan Mohamed
“Schooled with @AdanMohamedCS A-level to UON (topped his BComm class), Monica Juma @Diplomacy_Kenya from UON to PhD and I am still @FredMatiangi professional referee. These are top notch Kenyans who should not allow themselves to be wasted by this mediocre regime,” he added.
Earlier on, the public intellectual advised his friends in Jubilee not to allow their reputation to be tarnished by working for Kenyatta’s government.
“Memo to my friends in Jubilee: See how this successful CEO’s reduced to a blundering minion- the King’s fool. Graft, mediocrity follow him him like a bad smell. What a way to end a career? If you care to be on right side of history time to jump Jubilee sinking ship was yesterday,” he tweeted while referencing to Transport CS James Macharia’s description of striking JKIA workers as “criminals”.
Macharia previously served as CEO of NIC Bank before joining government in 2013.
