Uhuru submits names of Cabinet, Principal Secretaries and envoy nominees to Parliament for approval

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday transmitted the names of his Cabinet, Principal Secretaries and envoy nominees to Parliament for vetting.

House Speaker Justin Muturi is now expected to transmit the names of the CS nominees to the Committee of Appointments while various Departmental Committees will handle the vetting of nominees for Principal Secretaries and Ambassadors or High Commissioners.

MPs have 14 days approve or reject the nominees after dealing with questions of integrity, academic and professional backgrounds.
