Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja wants appointment of former Othaya MP Mary Wambui to the National Employment Authority (NEA) quashed.
The Senator says the the appointment goes against the provisions of Section 10(2) of the NEA act.
‘I have asked her to politely decline this appointment’, Sakaja said in a statement.
The appointment of Mary Wambui and many other old people brought to sharp focus the issue of youth unemployment since last week.
Sakaja believe that Mary Wambui is no fit for the position and can serve Kenyans ‘in a different capacity’.
‘Hon. Mary Wambui Munene is known to me, as we served together in the 1 1 th Parliament as well as having been a member of The National Alliance party which I chaired. I have confidence that she has the ability to serve Kenyans in a different capacity but not as the vision carrier and Chairperson of the National Employment Authority. I therefore urge her to politely decline this particular appointment’, he wrote.
The Senator went a step further to file a petition to have the appointment revoked.
‘I have further instructed my lawyers as well as those of the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association to file a petition this morning seeking to quash this appointment. The respondents of this suit are The Cabinet Secretary of Labour, The Hon. Attorney General and Hon. Mary Wambui Munene’, the statement concluded.
