Sharp Division as 3 Ruto’s CS Nominees Face Rejection at National Assembly While 21 May be Approved

Some nominees to the positions of CSs are at a risk of being rejected by the National Assembly. Those facing rejection had been cited for a number of transgressions, with some ranging from alleged corruption to questionable public conduct.

The Appointments Committee chaired by Speaker Wetang’ula is reportedly divided on some of the cabinet nominees over their nomination ahead of debate in the House this week.

It is reported that the committee’s report is set to be tabled today in the afternoon ahead of its debate tomorrow. It emerges that tomorrow will be the day when Members of Parliament could either approve or reject the nominees.

However it emerges that there was a stand-off as vetting committee disagreed on 3 Cabinet nominees. It emerges that the National Assembly Committee on Appointments has disagreed on approval of 3 out of the 24 names nominated by President Ruto to drive various dockets.

According to the Star, details from reliable sources revealed that the committee chaired by Speaker Moses Wetang’ula unanimously approved 21 Cabinet Secretary nominees. Unfortunately, it is reported that there was sharp division on the remaining three nominees. Those who will be approved will be gazetted ahead of their swearing-in into office.
