Veterinary Medicines Directorate CEO Dr. Jane Njoki Njiru.

More revelations have emerged regarding the conduct of Veterinary Medicines Directorate CEO Dr. Jane Njoki Njiru.

Despite the absence of board approval and oversight, Dr. Njiru has proceeded to schedule interviews for positions advertised since October 2023.

The interview panel consists solely of Dr. Njiru and Dr. Kenneth Otieno Orengo, which raises eyebrows due to allegations of corruption and nepotism.

Allegations against Dr. Orengo include his purported role as a "deal broker" and his facilitation of bribe solicitation from candidates seeking employment within the Directorate.

According to disturbing reports, some candidates even allegedly face pressure to pay as much as Ksh 200,000 to secure a position.

Dr. Njiru's decision to proceed with interviews despite the lack of board approval is a blatant contravention of ethical standards and disregard for legal protocols and governance structures.

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate has been operating without a board since April 2023, which has provided Dr. Njiru with an opportunity to exploit the situation for personal gain.

Stakeholders and authorities must investigate these allegations promptly and take decisive action to restore sanity at the Directorate.
