Matiang’i denies role in sacking of JKIA staff who made him queue

Education CS Fred Matiang’i has distanced himself from allegations that he influenced the sacking of a Kenya Airports Authority supervisor who had made him queue at JKIA.

In a series of Tweets posted on Friday, the Education Secretary instead claimed he was a “victim” of public profile.

The tough speaking Mataing’i also suggested the KAA supervisor was dismissed from duty because of issues not related to a reported incident between the two.

The KAA employee, Daizy Cherogony, has since sued the authority for sacking her over the alleged incident in April.

It is reported that Ms Cherogony had refused to allow Matiang’i and his security detail to proceed to the airport lobby without going through the screening procedures.

Interstingly, Ms Cherogony’s suspension letter dated April 7 indicates she embaraased Dr Mataing’i in Kisumu.

The suspension letter reads in part: “During the suspension you will not be paid salary but will be entitled to house allowance and medical cover as stipulated in the Human Resource manual.”
