CPB boss fired over Mexico maize.

Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has sacked National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) acting managing director Albin Sang over the alleged sale of about Sh1 billion maize imported from Mexico. Sources at the NCPB said  that Sang oversaw the selling of about 600,000 bags of maize to the millers without the authorisation of the ministry. The maize, which was bought by millers for animal feeds, is said to be in a bad state. The acting NCPB boss was reportedly acting on a letter that had been sent to the board by a former principal secretary (PS)and that no other directive had been issued to stop the disposal of the grain. Zakayo Magara replaced Sang, who has been acting since May last year.
