Here is the main reason why UHURU demoted NJERU GITHAE as Kenya ambassador to the US – No one knew about this

Saturday May 4, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday made several changes in his administration with 15 senior government officials affected in the latest shake-up.

 In the changes, Uhuru demoted Robinson Njeru Githae who was Kenya ambassador to the United States and moved him to Austria.

Githae’s position was taken by Lazarus Amayo, a son to former KANU disciplinarian Okiki Amayo. 

Mr Amayo was Kenyan High Commissioner to London before he was moved to New York as Nairobi's permanent representative to UN.

 Sources at State House said, Githae was demoted because of corruption.

Last year, Kenyans living in US accused him of imposing Sh15, 000 for application of Kenyan Identity Card instead of Sh4,500. But the former Finance minister vehemently denied the claims.

Weeks later, two Kenyans working in the embassy at Washington DC also accused Githae of forcing them to retire. Although the ambassador defended himself, the complaints may have forced the Foreign Affairs ministry to recommend his removal.
