"Don't Consider Poll Losers As PSs" Wanjigi Tells PSC, sends Message To Ruto On State Appointments

Businessman and former presidential candidate Jimi Wanjigi has urged the Public Service Commission (PSC) to exclude losers of the August 9th election from consideration when hiring principal secretaries.

Speaking on Sunday after attending a church service in Migori County, Wanjigi said that everyone who lost their bids in the elections held in August should refrain from working in the public sector since there is already enough qualified persons in the nation to fill those posts.

"Political failures who want to work for the government should stay away; Kenya has people qualified for those positions."

The Safina party leader continued by urging President William Ruto to stop being held captive by the politicians who supported him during the campaign for the August elections and now want him.

"Your Excellency the President, we are requesting that you not allow those close to you to control how the 51 million Kenyans are governed. We have observed that among the 585 people that were shortlisted, several of your people and their family are present."

The 49 PSs positions have attracted 585 candidates, including leaders of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance and other academic institutions, former principal secretaries, technocrats, and politicians.

IEBC commissioner Boya Molu is one of the names mentioned, along with David Sankok, Samuel Tunai, Nixon Korir, Jonathan Mueke, Isaac Mwaura, Joash Maangi, Ali Mbogo, and Beatrice Inyangala, to name just a few.
