NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 5 – Nominees for the Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Ngugi Njoroge and Board Chairperson Mohammed Nyaoga will be vetted by the National Assembly’s Committee on Finance on June 16.

In a newspaper advertisement, House Clerk Justin Bundi says the nominees will be expected to bring certificate of clearance from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Kenya Revenue Authority, Criminal Investigations Department and the Credit Reference Bureau.

“Pursuant to provisions of Article 118 of the Constitution, Section 6(4) of the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) Act and Standing Order 45(3), the general public is hereby notified that the Departmental Committee on Finance, Planning and Trade shall conduct the vetting of the said nominees on Tuesday 16th June 2015 in the Committee Room on 4th Floor, Continental House, Parliament Buildings,” reads the notice.
