Uhuru Makes Big Last Minute Changes To Key Govt Agencies Reducing Appointing Power of Successor

President Uhuru Kenyatta has made a few last-minute changes to his administration just two days before he retires.

The Head of State has fundamentally altered how government organizations are run, which might restrict the next president's power to appoint new bosses.

As some of the appointments are for durations of up to six years, the next Head of State won't have to deal with working with Uhuru's appointees or terminating their contracts.

Among the institutions affected are the Kenya National Public Health Institute, the Kenya Forestry Research Institute, the State Cooperation Advisory Committee, the Kenya Roads Board, the Kenya National Trading Cooperation, and the Kenya Law Reform Commission.

John Ogallo and Cecilia Mbinya Mutuku were chosen by Uhuru to serve on the commission council in accordance with Article 250 (2) of the constitution at the EACC. Each of them will serve in that capacity for a total of six years.

He also named Dr. Donald Apollo Kokonya to the position of non-executive board chairman of the Kenya National Board of Mental Health and John Waithaka to the position of non-executive chairman of the Kenya Forestry Research Institute for a three-year term.

Dr. Nabila Khanbhai was chosen by the Kenya Tissue and Transplant Authority to serve as its non-executive chairperson for a three-year period.

Retired colonel Noor Musa will head the Kenya Fisheries Service, followed by Robert Mwangi at the Kenya Water Towers Authority, Geoffrey Mbitu at the National Aids Control Council, and Jas Bedi at the Kenya Export Promotion and Branding Agency.

Captain Paul Rukaria, Phyllis Wakiaga, and Dennis Awori are the three-year-term chairs of the boards of directors of the Kenya National Trading Cooperation, the Kenya Roads Board, and the State Corporations Advisory Committee, respectively.

He gave Christine Anyango Agimba a six-year term as a member of the Kenya Law Reform Commission.
