Tourism and Wildlife CS nominee Peninah Malonza has been rejected by the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments.
This came after the committee tabled the report on the vetting process in Parliament on Tuesday, October 25.
National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung'wah moved the motion to inform Parliament of the findings of the vetting committee on the appointment of Cabinet Secretaries, Secretary to the Cabinet and Attorney General.
The Kikuyu MP said that the committee resolved to reject the nomination of Malonza by President William Ruto as she lacked requisite abilities and experience to serve as Tourism CS.
However, the House Committee on Appointments approved all other Cabinet Secretaries, including Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and Attorney General Justin Muturi.Following the report, the CSs below, who were nominated by President Ruto, stand approved by Parliament and await their swearing-in.
