JUSTICE FOR DR. WAQO DALACHA EJERSA
Health Cabinet Secretary Cecily Kariuki has asked for a re advertisement for the post of a CEO for the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency ( KEMSA) which was earlier conducted.
Dr. Wako Ejersa amongst other applicants was interviewed by Manpower Services, an external human resource consulting firm that was contracted by KEMSA board to filter the applicants. Dr. Wako, performed exemplary well in the interview. The firm then forwarded six names to the board for further interviews. Dr. Waqo was again ranked first from the interviews conducted by the board. He was thus recommended for the position of CEO KEMSA.
There is a suspicion of foul play by the Minister who wants to short change Dr. Waqo's appointment replacing him by her lieutenants. Dr. Waqo, who according to the HR consulting firm and the Board was the best for the position is thus being shortchanged. The CS has not given any reasons as to why the Interviews should be repeated.
It is in this regard that we the people of Northern Kenya feel betrayed by the same government which we stood for during the time of need.
Sir, we kindly request your esteem office to intervene this situation and ask Health CS to uphold her integrity and fairly appoint Dr. Waqo for the position which he rightfully deserves.
