Kenya: MOA Says No to Orina's Nomination

MEDIA Owners have criticised the appointment of Eric Orina to the Unclaimed Assets Authority Board accusing him of interfering with various organisations, disrespect, misuse of the court and character assasination.

In a letter to Finance Minister Njeru Githae dated December 5, MOA says Orina "lacks the credibility and integrity to serve on such a crucial goverment entity."

"We therefore register our strong objection to his appointment and demand that the same be rescinded without delay, failure to which we will move to court under Chapter 6 of the Constitution," says MOA in the letter.

MOA accuses Orina of interfering not only with the running of the association but also disrupting affairs of the Media Council of Kenya thus affecting its duties.
