A man has petitioned the Court and the County Assembly of Meru to stop the vetting of the Chief Officer Department of Health Services Dr Joseph Wahome Mukundi.

Mr Thuranira Salesio Mutuma, a renowned activist in Meru County has challenged the eligibility of Wahome arguing that he is not fit for the position.

In his affidavit, Mutuma accuses Wahome of bleaching the constitution and statutory laws while serving as the Chief officer in an acting capacity in the said position.

Mutuma alleges Wahome of unceremoniously ejecting and demoting the former Director of Public Health Dr John Inanga and in his position appointing Paul Kimathi.

According to the activist, the former director of public health raised complaints over his dismissal to the County Secretary but he was given a deaf ear.

The Meru activist also indicts the embattled doctor for dismissing Dr Patrick Mutembei Nkanata without indicating the reason for his termination.
