CS Joe Mucheru revokes appointment of a graft suspect as KIMC board member
Jared Peter Odoyo appointment as a board member of Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) was revoked by ICT CS Joe Mucheru.
“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 5 (20(h) of the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication Order, 2011, as read together with section 51 of the Interpretations and General Provisions Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Information, Communications and Technology revokes the appointment of Jared Peter Odoyo Kwaga as member of the council of the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication,” read the notice issued by the ministry.
Mr. Odoyo has been implicated in a graft scam involving Kes 2.5 billion related to Migori County.
It is still unclear why the CS Joe Mucheru still appointed him to the board despite all the question marks hanging over his integrity.
Odoyo is among Governor Obado’s aide whose bank accounts had been frozen last year September under investigation on allegation that they were part of the scheme to defraud the county government of Migori billions of money.
