Gov James Ongwae Suspends Sports Minister Duke Mainga
Kisii County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Culture, Sports, Youth, and Social Services Duke Mainga has been suspended.
Nation reports that the 27-year-old minister was accused of sabotage and misconduct.
According to the publication, Kisii Governor James Ongwae revealed that Mainga would be required to explain his conduct at a later date.
The governor revealed that he had suspended Mainga over his childish behaviour.
However, Ongwae did not disclose what the young minister did to warrant a suspension.
“We cannot have executives behaving childishly. Let it be very clear, I have suspended him not sacked,” Ongwae stated.
Sources privy to the matter divulged that Mainga had allowed free access to Gusii Stadium, a clear contravention of county government regulations.
The youthful minister was a former student leader at Kisii University.
He vied for the Bomachoge Borabu parliamentary seat and lost.
Mainga was picked as a CECM two months after the elections.
