In an incredibly strange case of dejavu and coincidence, barely a year after Laikipia Women Representative Cate Waruguru attacked the Deputy President in what was widely termed as unusual English, a similar incident appears to have once again replicated itself. Waruguru famously attacked the Deputy President for not being man enough to call out the president in ”day broadlight”, instead of “broad daylight”.
Speaking in Nyeri, former Othaya member of parliament Mary Wambui came out in spectacular fashion to throw a barb at an unnamed politician but who has been widely perceived to have been the deputy president.
NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua had just finished warning Kenyans from tolerating thieves and electing them to the government. Karua was in Nyeri meeting grassroot leaders in a unity forum. She told Kenyans that not all politicians are thieves or corrupt but those with such qualities should not be voted to leadership.
She was accompanied by former member of parliament, Mary Wambui.
Mary Wambui supported Martha by saying that she is the kind of leader that is needed in Kenya. She went ahead to reflect how Martha Karua had resigned from office because of corruption, before also urging the listening crowd not to vote for a corrupt leader. Only, she said, “Don’t elect leaders who are a corruption person”.
Just last year,the Employment Court quashed the appointment of Mary Wambui as the chairperson of National Employment Authority.
In a ruling, Justice Onesmus Makau said the appointment was irregular and that the former Othaya MP does not meet the qualifications of the office.
“The upshot is that the two petitions succeeds and the reliefs granted as sought,” the judge said.
According to the judge, the appointment of Ms Wambui did not meet the constitutional and statutory requirements.
He went ahead and quashed the gazette notice and issued a permanent injunction barring her from taking the post.
Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association said in a petition that she was not qualified under the law, policy and best practice, to be the chairperson of the authority.
The association said in the petition that Ms Wambui has on several occasions personally admitted that she possesses a limited educational background which for all intents and purposes makes her unqualified and unsuitable to conduct the affairs of the chairperson, in light of the specialist academic and professional requirements.
