Former Othaya MP Mary Wambui has been appointed as the Chairperson of Trustees of the Street Families Rehabilitation Trust Fund.
In a gazette notice Friday, Wambui will hold the position for three years according to Labour CS Simon Chelagui.
In exercise of the powers conferred by section 10 (1) (a) of the National Employment Authority Act, 2006, the Cabinet Secretary for Labour and Social Protection appoints Mary Wambui to be Chairperson of Trustees of the Street Families Rehabilitation Trust Fund, for a period of three (3) years, with effect from January 1, 2021,” read the notice.
Justice Onesmus Makau ruled that Wambui was unqualified for the position and that her appointment was irregularly done.
The ruling coming following a petition lodged in October 2019 by the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association headed by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja after Wambui’s appointment attracted public condemnation.
She will be replaced with Professor Grace Jerotich Cheserek. The Street Families Rehabilitation Trust Fund mandate is to coordinate rehabilitation activities for street families; conduct public education on street families issues; mobilize resources and fundraising as well as receiving donations and funding street families rehabilitation programmes.
