The appointments did not go well with various Kenyans including lawyers and some members of parliament who took to their social media platforms to call for the sucking of Macharia.
James Macharia who is also the chairman of the Nairobi Metropolitan Area Council is accused of appointing members from the same community to the Nairobi Metropolitan Area Transport Authority Board.
In a notice that went viral on social media yesterday, CS James Macharia appointed Mary Waithiegeni Chage, Zachariah Karenge Mungai and Ronald Ndirangu Ndegwa for three years with effect from 10th February 2021.City lawyer Donald Kipkorir is among Kenyans who were never satisfied with the appointments made by the CS. In his statement, he advised the president to fire James Macharia of for extreme negative tribalism.
