IS IT LEGAL SINCE HE IS STILL IN OFFICE?
The Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission Advisory Board will tomorrow advertise the embattled Justice Aaron Ringera job, further complicating the controversy that has put President Kibaki on spot.The move will now put the President on a collision course with the board for his decision to ignore it and bypass Parliament in renewing Ringera’s contract and that of two assistant directors.
The board, which was chaired by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Chairman Okong’o O’Mogeni, met this morning to approve a public advertisement for the top job.This will turn up the pressure on President Kibaki who was last week humiliated by Parliament for unilaterally renewing Ringera’s term and that of assistant directors Fatuma Sichale and Smokin Wanjala. Parliament nullified the President’s gazette notice reappointing the three after finding that the President acted against the law.
Dr Wanjala resigned on Friday following mounting pressure that the three relinquish their positions following the nullification of the Kenya Gazette notice. Sources familiar with the plans being made to advertise the position say the future KACC director will take home Sh900,000 less than Ringera’s hefty perks that total Sh2.5 million monthly.
What’s your take people on this?
