After reportedly failing to illegally prolong his stay as the Communications Authority Director in charge of Human Resource, we can now reveal that Mr. Juma Kiprono Kandie has been sacked.

Sources privy to this development have revealed that Mr. Kandie, who had tried all means to extend his stay in the position, has been handed a letter of termination by the respective organ.

This is following this blog’s continuous exposé that serialised the archaic tricks by Mr. Kandie to cook his age in order to stay in office.

Mr. Juma Kandie, whom reports accused of faking his age to prolong his stay as the Director in charge of Human Resource at the Communications Authority, had reportedly appealed to be exempted from servicing his existing loans following his interdiction last week – which is against the law.

This is after his alleged attempt to reverse his age by two years in order to fit within the retirement parameters hit a Berlin wall.

Mr. Juma Kiprono Kandie was recently on the spot for allegedly lying about his age to avoid early retirement from the Communications Authority.

A source privy to this development and not allowed to speak to the media on the same, told this writer that the board had nterdicted the Director.

In a story published by this writer some months ago, the allegations, if proved, would have seen the taxpayer lose millions of shillings to ‘illegal payments’ that would have been channelled for his enumeration.

The story might have sent some figures into panic mode as it later emerged how the said officer was trying to use alternative means to find his way back into the powerful office.

Having come from a same region from senior government officials, it’s reported that the officer has been using all means and connections within his reach to retain his position and put the issue of retirement age behind him, for once.

The officer was reportedly given a suspension leave immediately after our exposé.

The mandatory age of retirement in Kenya is sixty years, which he attained on 12/12/2022, having been born on 12/12/1962.

A look at copies of his original national Identification Document (ID) number 4897578 and whose serial number is 201816232 shows Mr. Kandie will turn 63 years this December.

The said Director had terribly failed to swear an affidavit to allege that he was born in 1964 in order to reap government salaries for another two years.

He was also accused of using his recent leave to find his way into the Registrar of Persons department to acquire a different birth certificate to qualify his required age to continue staying in the office.

However, after a clean look into the matter, it’s now clear that Mr. Kandie is a retired material and risks reimbursing the Kenyan government any financial dues allocated to him during this ‘criminal period’ and possibly, a jail term.

Sources that requested for anonymity have said that the officer was ruling with iron fist and high handedness, reason the employees were silently celebrating his exit.

Any criminal acts that entails lying about one’s real age in order to defraud the government, is punishable by law.
