Uhuru's new Appointments hang in the balance after Today’s Court development

New twist in Uhuru's appointment

The lawyer argued that the position of Chief Administrative Secretary was reached without public participation.

PSC is required to advertise for the slots, shortlist candidates, and conduct interviews before finally submitting names for hiring. It is the same procedure for recruiting Principal Secretaries (PSs) since they are not vetted by Parliament.

However, National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale, explained that the right procedure was followed since the President consulted the PSC.

On Friday President Uhuru Kenyatta named the Cabinet Secretaries, PSs and Chief Administrative Secretary who will serve in his government during his second Term in office.

The Appointed Chief Administrative Secretaries are:

Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs – Rachel Shebesh.
