Former Starehe MP Maina Kamanda's son lands new gov't job
Former Starehe Member of Parliament Maina Kamanda's son Michael Kamanda has landed a new State position at the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Board.
In a Friday gazette notice, from the Ministry of Interior, Kamanda, Judith Kariuki and Joseph Too were appointed to the organization as board members effective December 19, 2021.
Their stint will last for three years.
"In Exercise of the powers conferred by section 4 (1) of the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Co-ordination of National Government appoints Judith Miruka, Michael Kamanda and Joseph Too to be members of the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Board, for a term of three (3) years, with effect from the 19th December 2021," the notice read.
Prior to his appointment, Kamanda, was a board member at the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) but he was relieved of his duties by Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia in June 2018.
Maina’s sacking followed then KPA Managing Director Cathrine Mturi-Wairi's suspension from the organization’s board; she was later however reinstated by courts.
