(KDRTV) – Former Nairobi Governor Polycarp Igathe has surprised many after getting another lucrative job less than a week since he quit from Vivo Energy.
On Monday, Equity Bank announced that Igathe has rejoined the firm as the Chief Commercial Officer, a role he previously held at the firm.

Igathe worked at Equity Bank from July 2018 to September 2019. He rose to the position of Equity Bank Kenya Managing Director after three months at the bank.
However, he shockingly quit from the position last year and rejoined Vivo Energy as the African Executive Vice President for Sales and Marketing. That was in September 2019.
Last week he quit from the job without giving reasons why.
2016: Resigns as CEO Vivo
2018: Resigns as DG Nairobi
2019: Resigns as Equity Bank COO
2020: Resigns as Vivo Executive VP
This man is the real OG of resignations.

Igathe has forged a career in quitting. He controversially resigned from his job as Nairobi Deputy Governor in February 2018. He cited failure to earn Governor Mike Sonko’s trust as the reason he quit.
Polycarp Igathe’s first day at work is usually him busy applying for the next job.

Kenyans now believe Igathe’s first thing when he reports to a new job is to look for another job.
You see the way last borns eat food leave it then come demanding their left overs back? That's how Equity Bank leaves a vacant position for Polycarp Igathe anytime he feels like he's jobless…. Equity Bank must all the times reserve a job for Chris Kirubi's "son".

But how good is this guy to an extend he can’t stay jobless for more than a week? This month, Igathe is entitled a salary at both Vivo and Equity.
How marketable is Polycarp Igathe???
Bro, huyu mtu ako na qualifications gani? This is literally life on the employment fast lane.

To get a job in Kenya, you need connections but it seems Igathe is the connection itself. We all pray we will one day be lucky like him.
