​​​​​​​Ruto nominates Kidero, Omanga, Itumbi, 47 others as CASs

President William Ruto on Thursday nominated 50 persons for the roles of chief administrative secretaries, in what concludes the formation of his Executive, six months after he assumed office.

Most of those who have benefited from the appointments are Kenya Kwanza poll losers and backers, as well as politicians who ditched the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition after Dr Ruto was declared winner of the August 2022 presidential poll. The Azimio coalition is led by Raila Odinga, who rejected the election result.

The nominations follow the recommendation of the Public Service Commission. The names have now been forwarded to the National Assembly for consideration and approval, in line with the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) Act.

Among the nominees are Millicent Omanga (Ministry of Interior and National Administration), Denis Itumbi (Ministry of Information, Communications and the Digital Economy) and Evans Kidero (Ministry of Investments, Trade and Industry).

Others are Wilson Sossion (Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage) and Margaret Wanjiru (Ministry of Cooperatives and Micro, Small, Medium Enterprises Development).

The names of the nominees have since been submitted to Parliament for approval.

“BY DINT OF THE EXECUTIVE ACTION, the nominations have been transmitted to the National Assembly for consideration and approval by Parliament in accordance with the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) Act (No. 33 of 2011),” reads a statement Head of Public Service Felix Koskei
