Yesterday, the Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Transport Mr. James Macharia stole the day after the appointment three individuals from the same community to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services, NMS transport docket.
Taking to his Twitter account yesterday, the President of the Law Society of Kenya Nelson Havi urged the appointees to avoid being issues on what he termed as dividing Kenyans.
"Mary Waithiegeni Chege, Zachariah Karenge Mungai and Ronald Ndirangu Ndegwa do not be misused as human shields by a few Kikuyu elites who are not your friends or equals to polarize and divide Kenya. It is moronic corruption. Reject the sinful appointment by James Macharia.."
In a gazette notice dated 5th February, the CS appointed Mary Chege, Zacharia Mungai and Ronald Ndengwa to be members of the NMS transport Authority, a move that took effect from 10th February.
The appointment has attracted mixed reactions from political leaders and Kenyans across the country.
Nelson Havi's remarks caused an uproar online, here' number of the reactions;
@Ooro99461969: Just tell the CS to do the right thing instead of turning your gun to the softer targets, focus.
@Mwikiah: The appointees should not be condemned for someone sins. They should not even reject the job, but CS should be called out.
@OpusDei10626681: All Kenyans of good will must come out and condemn James Macharia for this level of tribalism! This is nonsense. ONLY members of one tribe qualified for the appointments?
@lucygavey: This are the fruits of the monster called "HANDSHAKE"
@b_kimunya: Whoever advises our president must be doing him more harm than good.
