They say social media never forgets, well that is a saying that Pauline Njoroge has come to realize its reality after her appointment as Tourism Regulatory Authority Board member was revoked.
The events happened so first that a day after her appointment as a member of Tourism Regulatory Authority, Najib Balala had to revoke her appointment after it was brought to light that she had termed Nairobi National Park as Useless.
Her post that was traced back to 2019 has come to haunt her as Tourism CS Najib Balala says they do not want to be associated with people with such thinking.
In her October 2019 Facebook post, Pauline wrote “By the way, how much revenue does the Nairobi National Park bring to this country. Isn’t there much more that can be done with it that can add more value? The only selling point of that park is that ‘It’s the only national park in a capital city in the world’ beyond that glamorous title, that else does it offer? The orphanage and the nature walk make economic sense…But the park? It does not make sense that in a congested city like Nairobi we can afford to have acres and acres of land in the name of a park when the is literally bursting at the seems with people…We even have to hold discussions on rerouting the SGR so as to have a park that is economically redundant!”
Netizens were alert and soon after the announcement was made, the post resurfaced and Kenyans wondered why such a person was appointed to the Tourism Regulatory Authority Board.
Balala thanked Kenyans on social media for bringing her posts to his attention saying it highlighted what they missed when doing a background check on her.
“I am revoking Pauline Njoroge’s appointment as a board member of the Tourism Regulatory Authority because we have just seen what she had tweeted in the past that Nairobi National Park was useless. We do not want to be associated with such people and such thinking,” he said in a statement on Saturday.
Starndard group’ Najma Ismael has since been appointed to replace Pauline Njoroge.
