Ruto's 51 PS nominees approved by parliament and ready for inauguration on Friday

In Summary:

- president Ruto's nominees have been approved.

- They will be sworn in on Friday after Court okays the vetting process.

The 51-member principal secretary, nominated by President William Ruto, is due to take office on Friday, December 3, Citizen Tv says.

This came after Congress approved vetting reports submitted by various departmental committees that conducted a vetting process of 51 candidates.

The minority party questioned the haste with which the PS was reviewed and approved, but Kenya's Kwanza party, led by majority leader Kimani Ichungwa, rejected the move, saying the government needed their services in its ministries.

"We did it very quickly because each committee took the time to interview candidates,” Ichungwa said.

The PS review was delayed at the request of the Kenya Bar Association, but the court rejected it because it was obtained in a hurry.

The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has asked the court to block the case in Parliament.
