Three days is a long time, as one Sam Michuki might have realized. On January 16, the government announced the appointment of Mr Michuki as the new National Youth Service (NYS) director general.
Three days later, on Tuesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta witnessed the swearing of a different man, Ethan Richard Ndubai, as the new NYS DG.
“Witnessing the swearing-in of the new National Youth Service Director-General, Ethan Richard Ndubai, at State House, Mombasa,” read a caption on pictures posted President Kenyatta’s Facebook page.
Mr Michuki’s appointment was announced by the government website, mygov.go.ke (the report is still available online), and was widely reproduced on local media.
The site is passed as the “Government News Platform”.
“The Government has appointed. He replaces Dr Nelson Githinji who stepped aside over corruption allegation in November 2015. Public Service Principal Secretary Lilian Omollo who made the announcement today said the State also deployed Ms Clare Lwali, who was acting as director general to the sports ministry,” reads the post on the government site in part.
