Shock as details emerge how President RUTO created non-existent jobs for his loyalists at the expense of poor taxpayers.

President William Ruto is in the eye of the storm yet again for nominating Principal Secretaries who do not have a job description.

In a statement, Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma accused Ruto of rewarding loyalists with positions that do not have matching duties and responsibilities at the time the country is facing a huge wage bill with an economy in crisis.

“Several nominated PSs have nothing to do but take-home salaries and benefits,” the Azimio-affiliated parliamentarian castigated Ruto.

According to Kaluma, Ruto picked PSs for positions that contravened the constitutional structure.

“What will the principal secretary for parliamentary affairs do in the face of separation of power,” the MP wondered.

The MP also lamented that two ethnic groups – Kalenjin and Kikuyu – dominated the list of nominees making the appointments to lack national outlook.

Kaluma’s outburst came ahead of the hearing and determination of a petition seeking to stop the vetting of PS nominees.

Labour Court Judge Nzioki wa Makau stopped vetting of PS’s pending determination of petition filed by Law Society of Kenya (LSK) on November 15.

In the petition, LSK raised similar concerns as Kaluuma, arguing that the list lacked gender, tribal and regional balance.

Elsewhere,

A motion seeking to impeach Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza was on Tuesday tabled in the Meru County Assembly.

The motion which was tabled by Abothuguchi West MCA Denis Kiogora who is also the minority whip in the house was supported by 68 out of the total 69 MCAs in the assembly by appending their signatures.

Grounds that the motion seeks to impeach the Governor include nepotism, illegal appointments, unlawful dismissals and usurpation of the constitutional and statutory functions of county organ, Contempt of Court, incitement, bullying, vilification, and misleading campaigns against other leaders.

Other grounds include forceful entry into the assembly precincts and mobilisation of unlawful riots against members of the assembly, violation of public finance management law, and misconduct relating to the nomination of County Executive Committee Members.

Some of the allegations against the Governor on nepotism and illegal appointments include appointing her husband to the non-existent offices of the Patron of the Meru Youth Service and the hustler’s ambassador before conducting a transparent and competitive recruitment process.
