The Union of Kenya civil servants has waded into the raging storm surrounding the recent sacking of Maasai Mara University whistle blower Spencer Sankale.
In a press statement, the UKCS Secretary-General Mr Tom Mboya Odege said Sankale was being “unfairly targeted” for playing a “noble and patriotic” role and should be rewarded instead of being sacked.
Mr Odege accused the Maasai Mara University Council of not being fair to Spencer Sankale Ololchike, the Chief Finance Officer at the university, sacked for exposing a corruption scandal at the institution which was highlighted on national TV
Odege accused the Maasai Mara University Council of not being fair to Spencer Sankale Ololchike, the Chief Finance Officer at the university, sacked for exposing a corruption scandal at the institution which was highlighted on national TV.
Odege faulted the council for claims that Sankale “was not the only whistle blower at the university,” so what he wondered? The civil servants union boss dismissed the council defence that Sankale was “specifically fired due to his unrelenting insolence, cyber bullying, libel and defamation towards his employer, among other documented cases of gross misconduct.” This is simply distorting the truth, he said.
The fact that Sankale was summoned to appear before the council after he appeared on the 2019 Citizen TV expose dubbed Mara Heist, is proof that the council had for long been working on how to “kick out the whistleblower” stated Cheboi who echoed similar sentiments from Transparency international.
He faulted the council for claims made that Mr Sankale failed to produce any evidence of his allegations when video clips “clearly depicted the shameless looting taking at the university.
