• Mburu said she was in her office around 6:45 pm signing letters and reading when she turned on the TV and saw the breaking news.
• Ruto has appointed Irungu Nyakera as the chairperson of the KEMSA board.
Former Health Principal Secretary Josephine Mburu has said she learnt of her sacking from the media.
Speaking while she appeared before a committee, Mburu said she was in her office around 6:45 pm signing letters and reading when she turned on the TV and saw the breaking news.
"I keep on asking myself why I was fired, but from the media, we were told the President was advised to sack me, I think the question is will I seek justice, or maybe we need to know what advise the President was given for him to say Josephine you were involved in this tender," she said.
She added that with over 34 years in public service, she knows how to handle sensitive information and work toward the mandates listed, saying she works to the best of her knowledge.
"I have had a good working relationship with the President, when I was sacked, I had a meeting with the head of state in the morning. I would like to be listened to and given a fair administrative judgment," she said.
President William Ruto had on May 16 sacked Mburu and the whole of the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority board including its chair Daniel Rono.
The head of state had pledged to take bold action following claims of an alleged scandal regarding the supply of mosquito nets.
At the same time, Ruto has appointed Irungu Nyakera as the chairperson of the KEMSA board.
