Uhuru nominates new SRC Chairperson

Chumo was rejected by parliament over integrity issues.

The nomination comes a week after members of parliament rejected in totality, the nomination of former KPLC Managing Director Ben Chumo, who was axed on integrity issues.

Ms Cherop was among a host of people who were touted to replace Sarah Serem who was picked by the president to an ambassadorial job.

Others who featured prominently in the race to replace former chairperson Sarah Serem whose term came to an end last December, are former Vice Chairperson of the Public Service Commission (PSC) Ambassador Peter Ole Nkurayia and former Institute of Certified Public Accounts of Kenya (ICPAK) chief executive Patrick Ngumi.

Also the president has picked Anne Makori IPOA Chairperson; EX-IEBC Legal Affairs boss Praxedes Tororey among seven members.
