President William Ruto has nominated former Kitutu Masaba MP, Shadrack Mose, to serve as the next Solicitor General.

The nomination, which was forwarded to Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula, awaits approval by Parliament.

Should the nomination be approved, Mose will take the place of Ken Ogeto, who also hails from Nyamira County.

The President's choice to nominate Mose is in accordance with both the Office of the Attorney-General Act and the Public Appointments, Parliamentary Approval Act.

Mose, who ran for the Kitutu Masaba parliamentary seat during the 2022 General Elections as a candidate for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, previously held the seat after winning the 2017 polls under the Jubilee party.

In a letter to Speaker Wetangula, President Ruto stated, "It is most graciously notified that Dr William Ruto, President and Commander-In-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces, has in exercise of the constitutional prerogative vested in the Head of State and Government nominated Mr Shadrack John Mose, for appointment as the Solicitor-General."

The former MP faced stiff competition from former LSK President Nelson Havi who had also applied for the position.

However, on Friday, it became clear that Havi would not take the job after he was appointed as the Chairperson of the Board of Directors at the Retirement Benefits Authority.
