Boya Molu, Sankok Among Those Rejected for PS Jobs

On Wednesday, November 2, President William Ruto's Chief of Staff, Felix Koskei, released a list of the 51 Principal Secretary positions that the Head of State wants to be filled by the people on the list.

On the list were several people who were loyal to the President, such as Nixon Korir, Julius Korir, Teresia Mbaika, and others.

A group of applicants, however, who had already made it through the first round of applications and had their names sent to the Head of State for consideration, were noticeably absent.

Mary Chebukati, who is married to Wafula Chebukati, the head of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), was at the top of the list.

David Ole Sankok, a former Nominated Member of Parliament, and Boya Molu, a former IEBC Commissioner, were also on the list of candidates, but neither of them got the job.

The Head of State also turned his back on Principal Secretaries who had worked for Uhuru Kenyatta, the country's fourth president, and wanted to keep their jobs.

Esther Koimett, who was in charge of broadcasting and telecommunications, Peter Kaberia, who was in charge of industrialization, Julius Jwan, Saitoti Torome, and Nelson Marwa, who was in charge of planning, were among them (Social Protection).

Margaret Mwakimu (TVET) and Fred Sigor were the other two (Wildlife).

Mercy Mwangangi, the Chief Administrative Secretary for Health, and Dr. Patrick Amoth, the Director General for Health, were also in the running for the top job but did not make the final list.

The only two PSs from the Uhuru regime that were kept were Belio Kipsang, who was in charge of Regional and Northern Corridor Development, and Charles Hinga, who worked in the Housing Department.

Isaac Mwaura, a former nominee for a Senate seat, Chris Wamalwa, who ran for governor of Trans Nzoia but lost, Samuel Tunai, a former governor of Narok, and Laban Ayiro, vice chancellor of Daystar University, were also not on the final list of appointments.

In the end, 585 people were chosen for the top jobs and were interviewed in the middle of October.
