    Mike Okiro was sacked and his job was given to another OAP? Old Boys Club still helping out its “members!”

      Child/guardian/stan of Oikiro, you should have stopped at your first sentence.

      !) You need more arithmetic in your life. How is it 6 years when he was appointed in 2013? How does that add up to 6 years. BTW, his tenure was extended after it expired in December 2017 and he was just doing overtime, so again where does the 6 years come in?
      2) You need more comprehension in your life. A question mark indicates an interrogative sentence and not an assumption and/or misinformation.
