Hello Mr. Kanja,

Is Kenya really in such a situation as regards talent, as to warrant the
accommodation of individuals even when it's obvious there  will be conflict
of interest??
If they don't resign, impartiality suffers so they must do the right and
honorable thing. If we don't do that, we end up encouraging the same
attitude where noone wants to take responsibility for messes occurring under
their watch. The recent fiasco at  KNEC comes to mind.
We must encourage/nurture the culture where people come clean on everything
they do, and not accommodated just because they are hard to replace (which
is an assumption you made, I believe).

Best regards,
