Businessman and the former presidential aspirant Jimi Wanjigi has called upon the Public Service Commission (PSC) not to consider August 9th poll losers in the recruitment of Principal secretaries.
Speaking on Sunday after attending a church service in Migori County, Wanjigi argued that anyone who lost their bids in the August's elections should keep off from the public service, saying that the country has enough and qualified personnel for those positions.
"Political failures who want to join the civil service should keep off, there is personnel in Kenya to get those posts."
The Safina party leader went on to call upon President William Ruto to desist from being held hostage by the politicians who campaigned for him before the August polls and now want him to reward them with positions.
"We want to ask you Your Excellency the President, do not be held hostage by those people around you in the governance of the 51 million Kenyans. We have noticed that in the 585 who were shortlisted, some of your people and their relatives are there in large numbers."
The 585 applicants ranging from scholars, former principal secretaries, technocrats and also politicians will be eyeing 49 PSs slots as advertised by PSC, with some of the conspicuous names being Kenya Kwanza Alliance allied leaders.
Some names include IEBC commissioner Boya Molu, David Sankok, Samuel Tunai, Nixon Korir, Jonathan Mueke, Isaac Mwaura, Joash Maangi, Ali Mbogo, Beatrice Inyangala just to mention but a few.
