The Employment Court has quashed former Othaya MP Mary Wambui’s appointment as chairperson of National Employment Authority.
The courts said that the politician was unqualified and that the appointment was irregular.Justice Onesmus Makau issued a permanent injunction barring Ms Wambui from being appointed to the post.
The former othaya MP was appointed to State job in October 2019 in what bro but the public was outraged, saying she was out of touch with the realities of young, unemployed graduates.
They also questioned the former lawmaker’s capacity to deliver.Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga, of the ruling Jubilee Party, said the appointment by President Uhuru Kenyatta was a slap in the face of Kenyan youth.
In late October 2019, Justice Hellen Wasilwa barred Ms Wambui from taking over the job, following a case by the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association.The petitioners argued that Ms Wambui was not qualified under the law, policy and best practice, and that she had admitted possessing limited education.
