Kisiang’ani says that he is privy to the suspension but has not been apprised of details prompting Chiloba’s dismissal and will be engaging the CA board to establish the grounds upon which the decision was made.
He says that the ministry does not micromanage every institution that falls under the communication umbrella hence why he does not know the reasons behind the suspension.
“The ministry does not micromanage the state corporations, they have their own boards, chairmen and other board members who make decisions almost on a daily basis but finally the ministry gets a report,” he said.
“The oversight is done by the board and once they realise that it is a mistake, they take quick decisions which now are communicated to us at the ministry level.”
PS Kisiang’ani was speaking during Citizen TV’s Monday report show.
He further stated that upon making engagements with the relevant individuals he will issue a comprehensive statement on the matter.
“I will see the details which forced them to take that decision and I have the authority also to reverse if I think that it is not done in the right way but for now we need guidance from the board to give us the details,” he said.
“There were allegations of irregularities within the mortgage scheme and it is part of the oversight which the board has been working on. There have been investigations going on in that regard but the process had not been concluded.”
Chiloba’s position was taken by Christopher Wambua who will serve as the interim Director General until further notice.
The reason behind Chiloba’s suspension was not immediately announced.
