Cabinet Secretary for Tourism Najib BaIala has on Saturday revoked appointment of Pauline Njoroge with immediate effect as a board member of Tourism Regulatory Authority.
Through a statement, CS Balala said that her revocation was due to a post she made on her official Facebook page regarding the Nairobi National Park.
“I am revoking Pauline Njoroge’s appointment as a board member of Tourism Regulatory Authority because we have just seen what she had tweeted in the past that Nairobi National Park was useless. We do not want to be associated with such people and such thinking,” said CS Balala.
CS Balala regretted not knowing what she had said in the post.
“We want to take this opportunity to thank Kenyans on Social Media for highlighting what we had missed during our background check on her,” he said.
At the same time, the Tourism CS has appointed journalist Najma Ismael to replace Pauline Njoroge as a board member of the Tourism Regulatory Authority.
