Whereas Evans was an accomplished manager with solid academic background it is not clear what Bruce brings to the office other his experience as a music producer and a Jubilee events organizer in the last general election. Evans is a Masters graduate of Utrecht University (rated best public university in the Netherlands) and ranked top 50 world wide.
It is not clear what will happen to his contract since he served slightly over ONE year of his THREE year contract. He was appointed by President Mwai Kibaki as chairman of the Board of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund. The three year appointment was effective January 16, 2013 and was announced through the Kenya Gazette of February 15, 2013.
Mr. Semelang’o, who had served for three years as a member of the board, became the third Chairperson of the Youth Enterprise Development Fund. His predecessors were Ms. Hellen Tombo (2006 to 2009) and Mr. James Gitau Singh (2010 to 2013).
He has been active in youth matters, having served as the chairman of the National youth council steering committee. He was expected to steer the Fund through its second strategic plan.
Semelangó is well known for his flamboyancy (Ujaluo itamuua!) and well respected by his peers and the youth. He is very accessible and often gets work done. We wait if indeed the president was once again mis-advised to FIRE him. Our in-house legal expert has indicated that the tax payer will have to foot the burden of paying damages (breach of contract) which will include his lost earnings to the full end of the contract and other benefits that likely will sum into millions – and yet we say iko mambo ya wagebill !
In 2013 Semelang”o was among the influential youths who volunteerd to pick ICC bullet aimed at president Uhuru, ICC had claimed Uhuru hosted Mungiki in statehouse BUT Semelang’o and other youths including ambassador Vyone Khamati among others covered it by telling Ocampo and the world that they were the alleged ‘Mungiki’ and thereby calling a bluff on the ICC.
Here is Evans crying loud for wrongful dismissal:
