State Department on Thursday, February 8 declared that Robert Godec had their full confidence and support, despite heavy criticism from a section of NASA leaders.
Godec has been vocal against a number of opposition’s moves , including the outlawed inauguration ceremony held on January 30. During a January 4 meeting with Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka and Leader of Majority Kipchumba Murkomen, Godec said that what was key was that NASA and the Jubilee government embrace national dialogue instead. Godec has also not spared the Jubilee government’s blemishes as he has also been critical of the recent move to switch off jey TV stations in the country for upto a week.
