During the sitting of the whole house on Wednesday, October 26, the MPs gave the green light for the candidates to be sworn in as Cabinet Secretaries.

The House dismissed recommendations from the Committee on Appointments to reject Tourism CS nominee Peninah Malonza.

The Committee of Appointments had faulted Malonza for not demonstrating the requisite knowledge and information to serve in the docket.

The nominee did not demonstrate knowledge on topical, administrative and technical issues touching on the ministry. She lacked the requisite abilities and professional experience to be approved for appointment to the office of Cabinet Secretary,” the committee report stated.
