National As­sem­bly to ap­prove Githiria as Mu­tutho re­placem­net in drugs agency

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The National As­sem­bly is this morn­ing ex­pected to ap­prove Lt Col (Rtd) Julius Githiria as Na­cada chair­man, tak­ing over from for­mer Naivasha MP John Mu­tutho. Githiria is cur­rently the di­rec­tor of the In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional Se­cu­rity Stud­ies. Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta nom­i­nated him on Oc­to­ber 18. The National As­sem­bly Se­cu­rity and National Ad­min­is­tra­tion Com­mit­tee, which was vet­ting the nom­i­na­tion, will ta­ble its re­port for ap­proval. Githiria will suc­ceed Mu­tutho, who was ap­pointed the chair­man of the Trans­port Li­cens­ing Ap­peals Tri­bunal. Mu­tutho sued In­te­rior CS Joseph Nkaissery for sack­ing him, say­ing this was be­cause of his fight against cor­rup­tion at the au­thor­ity. “My retirement is in bad faith since I have been at the fore­front of fight­ing cor­rup­tion at the agency, where Sh500 mil­lion has been lost,” he said. The High Court tem­po­rar­ily stopped Nkaissery from re­tir­ing Mu­tutho, say­ing he had an ar­guable case.
