Controversy As MP Otiende Narrates How Ruto Shortlisted CASs Who Didn't Apply

Otiende Paul, the current Member of Parliament for Rarieda Constituency, has provided additional insight into the controversy surrounding the Kenya Kwanza Government's shortlisting of Chief Administrative Secretaries.

President William Samoei Arap Ruto chose individuals who never even applied for the CAS posts, according to Rarieda Constituency Member of Parliament Paul Otiende Amolo, who was speaking on KTN News on Tuesday.

He continued by disclosing that the national government' s hiring agency, PSC, had a list of individuals whose names were to be submitted for the next screening procedure, but they were never submitted and other individuals took their place.

"For any vacancy that will be announced by the PSC, we know whose name will be proposed before it is brought to parliament. There are names of people shortlisted for the CAS positions who never applied," MP Paul Otiende Amolo argued.

Otiende said he has a source inside the PSC who provides him with information about how the shortlisting procedure was tainted and that he cannot not name his source.

Otiende Paul accused the PSC of becoming privatized and pleaded with it to operate independently and to serve Kenyans, not private individuals.

He urged the PSC to be authoritative and transparent in its hiring practices so that Kenyans would trust that whenever they post job opportunities and shortlist candidates, they do so on the basis of merit and not favors, especially for the political class.
