BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,24TH JULY 2018-Former CID director Ndegwa Muhoro will now be the new Kenyan envoy to Malaysia with President Uhuru Kenyatta listing duty stations for nine ambassadorial nominees .
In the message read on the floor of parliament by Speaker Justin Muturi, former State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu has been chosen to head Kenya’s High Commission in the United Kingdom while ex-Salaries and Remuneration Commission Chairperson Sarah Serem is tipped to head the embassy in China.
Further former Kenya Air force Commander Samuel Thuita is to be posted to Israel, Paddy Ahenda will head Kenya’s mission in Qatar while Peter Ogego Oginga, Johnson Kimani, Chris Karumba Mburu and Benjamin Langat have nominated to the Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Juba and Namibia missions respectively.
The National Assembly Committee on Defence and Foreign Relations had previously expressed reservations with the way the nominations had been done, arguing that without duty stations, the vetting exercise would be complicated.
The House Speaker has now directed the Committee to commence the approval hearings and table their reports on or before August 7 to enable the House consider the matter within the statutory timelines.
