This is a huge blow as he had begun his tenure at the helm of the tribunal and was served for a period of three years. This simply means he only walked home with September’s salary only.

The announcement of the sacking was made public by Cabinet Secretary, Industrialization, Trade, and Enterprise Development, Betty Maina. But the reason for his sacking was not immediately made public.

Nelson Havi took over from Gichuhi in 2020 after winning the much-contested elections. He floored other candidates including Maria Mbeneka, Charles Kanjama, and Harriet Chiggai.

 

Others who lost their jobs include lawyer Ambrose Weda who was appointed to chair the Competition Tribunal less than a month ago.

 

Kenya Ports Authority board member, Delilah Ngala, was moved to the Kenya Fishing Industries Corporation where she will serve alongside Johnson Kazungu, Lumumba Oyua, and Kanainza Daisy Nyongesa for three years.

 

Sara Bonaya, a widow of former Foreign Affairs Minister, Bonaya Godana, was appointed chairperson of the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
