15MPs Appointed To Parliamentary Vetting Committee
The National Assembly has authorized the appointment of members to the Committee on Appointments, which would review President William Ruto's nominees for Cabinet Secretaries.
Nelson Koech, Rahab Wachira Mukami, Dido Ali Raso, George Gitonga Murugara, David Gikaria, Ferdinand Wanyonyi, Mary Emaase, Abdul Rahim Dawood, Junet Mohamed, Caleb Amisi, Stephen Mule, Abdi Shurie, Naisula Lesuuda, David Pkosing, and Mishi Mboko are among the fifteen members.
The committee, which is headed by the National Assembly speaker, is made up of the deputy speaker, the majority and minority leaders and their aides, as well as any other candidates put out by the majority and minority sides.
The Committee will choose a member from among its members to preside over the meeting in the Speaker's absence.
According to the House Standing Orders, the Committee on Appointments must be chosen within seven days of a new House's assembly and must hold office for three years. A Committee will be appointed to serve for the remaining three years of the Assembly's mandate following the initial three-year period.
The committee must review President Ruto's cabinet selections within 28 days of the first sitting and present a report to the house.
Given that the National Assembly has until November 3 to complete the process of vetting Cabinet Secretary nominees, the house plenary is required to discuss the report within 7 days.
Prior to the vetting process, the National Assembly requested memos from the public on all of the Cabinet nominees on Friday, October 7.
