President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated Eliud Kinuthia to take over leadership at the National Police Service Commission.

Revealing the development on Tuesday, Speaker Justin Muturi told members of parliament that the president is seeking to have his nominee and five others approved to replace Johnston Kavulundi and his team at the commisiion.

"Honourable Members, section 6(6) of the National Police Service Commission Act requires the National Assembly to either approve or reject the nominees to the respective positions within twenty one (21) days," Speaker Muturi's letter to MPs read in part.

The five nominees are Lilian Kiamba, Eusebius Karuti Laibuta, Naphtaly Kipchirchir Rono, Alice Atieno Otwala and John Tentemo Ole Moyaki.

The Speaker further noted that CVs for the six nominees would be sent to the Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security.

The committee has further been instructed to inform the public on the dates and venues for the approval hearings.

Kavulundi's tenure ended in October 2018 with reports indicating that the taxpayer would have to part with Sh82.4 million as service gratuity.
