His services are no longer required.

Health CS Sicily Kariuki

Water Sanitation and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki has revoked the appointment of former Igembe North MP Joseph M'eruaki M'uthari as Chairman of the Tana Water Works Development Agency.

M’uthari’s appointment was negated in a gazette notice published on Friday, May 28, 2021.

However, CS Kariuki did not indicate the reasons for his sacking just a year after he was appointed in 2020.

The agency serves Kirinyaga, Nyeri, Meru, Embu and Tharaka Nithi counties covering an area of 17,189.7 square kilometers with a population of 3,917,065 people.

M’uthari was supposed to serve as the chair for three years starting June 2020, but that was not to be.

He was elected as MP for Igembe North in 2013 on a TNA ticket but lost the seat in 2017 to National Assembly deputy majority Whip Maoka Maore.

Sources close to the politician say that he is preparing to contest the Igembe North seat again in 2022.

He has over 20 years experience as a consultant development practitioner in social work and community development.

In 2002, M’uthari was honoured by the UN, for his role in facilitating the liberation and transformation of Meru residents as director of Caritas in the county.
