ICT CS Joe Mucheru has revoked the appointment of Jared Kwaga as a member of the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) board.

“…the Cabinet Secretary for Information, Communications and Technology revokes the appointment of Jared Peter Odoyo Kwaga as a member of the Council of the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication,” reads the notice.

Kwaga is a close associate of Migori Governor Okoth Obado.

His assets were frozen by the High Court after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission filed Sh1.9 billion recovery suit against him and six relatives. They include his mother and wife.
