BY JOAN WANJIKU,5TH JUNE 2018-It is a reprieve for for suspended Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Managing Director Catherine Mturi-Wairi after a high court in Mombasa reinstated her just a week after she was sent on compulsory leave .
High Court Judge Eric Ogola on Tuesday directed Ms. Mturi to get back to work until a case challenging her dismissal and the appointment of Daniel Manduku to the position in acting capacity is heard and determined.
The case was filed by a Mombasa resident, Emmanuel Kenga, who argues that the meeting held to discuss Mturi’s dismissal was illegal.
The case was set for hearing on June 12, 2018.
Ms. Mturi’s reinstatement comes amid another case filed by human rights activist Okiya Omtata challenging the KPA boss’ dismissal.
She was sent on compulsory leave on May 30, 2018, by the board for failing to meet performance targets.
