Magical Kenya: ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru appoints dead man to State job

Before dust could settle on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s decision to appoint former two time Othaya MP Mary Wambui as Chairman of National Employment Authority, Jubilee government pulled another shocker on the citizens.

Kenyans were left in the deepest end of confusion after Information Communication Technologies (ICT) Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru reappointed the late Robert Llataramatwa Kochalle as Board Member to Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB).

“In exercise of powers conferred by section 11A (e) of the Film and Stage Platys Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Information Communication and Technology, reappoints ……, Robert Kochalle to be member of board of KFCB,” read the gazette notice of Thursday, October 7, 2019 seen by Saasanews.co.ke.

Kenyans being what they are best, and maybe too displeased with Jubilee’s government philosophy of reappointing old dogs to help them learn new tricks, established that, sadly Kochalle died on May 29, 2018 at Aga Khan hospital.

Curious netizens circulated the copy of the obituary of Kochalle online and questioned the government’s commitment to employ young people.

The shocking, if not magical milestone by Mucheru of employing not the elderly but those who had transitioned to the ancestry spheres came at a day, Uhuru appointed former Kenya Revenue Authority boss John Njiraini Njiraini as chairman of the Geothermal Development Company.

The appointment came few months after Njiraini who left KRA without hardly having achieved revenue targets, withdrew his application for the position of the National Land Commission (NLC).

In his withdrawal, Njiraini said he had gone to pursue other interests. Little did anyone know his doors would open immediately others are closed., unlike the situation is for Kenyan youths.

Citizens have in the recent past bashed Uhuru for recycling elderly public officers and negating his promise to reduce the high unemployment rates among Kenyan youths.

Awestruck Kenyans had the following to say;
