Pauline Njoroge

Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage Cabinet Secretary Peninah Malonza has revoked the appointment of Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s son Kevin Muasya and blogger Pauline Njoroge as members of the Tourism Board.

Muasya, Ms Njoroge, Momoi and Njangu were appointed by former Tourism CS Najib Balala in August 2020 on a three-year contract.

The statement by Malonza comes as President Ruto is making reshuffles in state offices.

Ms Njoroge is well known for being a sharp critic of the Kenya Kwanza government through her social media posts since the election of President William Ruto.

The CS made the announcement in a Gazette Notice dated March 9, 2023, dismissing the pair alongside three other members before the conclusion of their term in the Ministry.

The other members are former KTN Journalist Najma Ismail, Alais Lenana Momoi and Isaac Muchiri Njangu.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 8 (1) (g) of the Tourism Act, as read together with section 51 (1) of the Interpretations and General Provisions Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage revokes the appointment of Kevin Muasya, Najma Ismail, Alais Lenana Momoi, Isaac Muchiri Njangu, Pauline N. Njoroge as members of the Board of Directors of the Tourism Regulatory Authority,” read the statement.

In the past weeks, the president has made appointments to various boards of parastatals and state agencies after he recently added more personnel to his administration.
