Samuel Njoroge's appointment as the new Clerk was endorsed by members of the National Assembly on Tuesday, October 1.
A report created by the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC), which was in charge of overseeing the hiring process, suggested Njoroge's name.
Adan Keynan, an MP for Eldas and a member of the panel, presented the findings despite objections from some Azimio la Umoja MPs.
Samuel Chepkonga, an Ainabkoi MP, was then asked to second the motion.
This House approves the appointment of Mr. Samuel Njoroge as the Clerk of the National Assembly, Keynan said, "taking into consideration the Recommendations of the Parliamentary Service Commission in its Report on the Recruitment of the Clerk of the National Assembly, laid on the Table of the House today, Tuesday, 1st November 2022, and pursuant to the provisions of Article 128 (1) of the Constitution."
