Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) has suspended Harrison Mumia, the president of Atheists Society of Kenya for gross misconduct.
CBK suspended Mumia on half pay over several tweets he posted in his personal Twitter account.
According to a letter by CBK Human Resources Acting Director Terry Ng’ang’a, Mumia must show cause why he should not be fired over gross misconduct.
The action stems from Mumia’s tweets commenting on an incident in which Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter was arrested at the CBK headquarters.
Reacting to the suspension on Twitter, Mumia dismissed the action as fascism.
“ CBK has sacked me from employment based on TWEETS that appeared on my timeline last year in February,” Mumia posted on Twitter. “ It is acceptable that CBK HR acting director Terry Ng’ang’a should engage in witchhunt.”
