I'm better than those complaining - Mary Wambui fires back at Kenyans

Gloves come off as Mary Wambui responds to naysayers

Former Othaya MP Mary Wambui appointed as Chairperson for the National Employment Authority

Former Othaya MP Mary Wambui Munene has issued a response to Kenyans who opposed her appointment as Chairperson of the National Employment Authority.

In a brief statement to the press, Ms Wambui insisted that she is qualified for the government role.

She further hit back at the naysayers claiming that she is more adept at the requirements of the post than any of those questioning her efficacy.

"I got the post because I am better than those complaining. I have the qualifications and experience to run the office," she stated.

She went on to promise that she would focus on Kenyan youth when she takes up the job.

"I thank the President for this opportunity. He has the youth’s interests at heart and I promise to deliver on the same. I assure the youth of this nation that we will work to creating more and better jobs for them," she pledged.

Mary Wambui appointment

Labour CS Ukur Yattani appointed Ms Wambui to the position earlier this week through a Gazette Notice.

On the same day, President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed a nine-member team to the State Corporations Advisory Committee.
