, NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 3 – The vetting of nominees for ambassadorial posts by the National Assembly’s Defence and Foreign Relations Committee is set to continue Friday.
Those who will be vetted include Oginga Ogego who will be based in Saudi Arabia, Johnson Kimani Ondieki who will go to Turkey, Chris Karumba Mburu whose station will be in Juba, South Sudan and Benjamin Langat who will go to Namibia.
The vetting commenced on Thursday with Former Salaries and Remunerations Commission (SRC) chairperson Sarah Serem stating that the review of earnings among public servants was not skewed against MPs.
Former Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro also dismissed a petition by lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi against his nomination as envoy to Malaysia, saying it was driven by pure malice and vendetta.
Abdullahi and Muhoro had been at loggerheads when the latter served as DCI in what stemmed from investigations into the controversial Tatu City prime property.
Muhoro, defended his nomination saying apart from his experience, his educational background which includes a Masters Degree in International Studies will play a big role in his diplomatic job.
