William Ruto has continued to send more of Uhuru Kenyatta’s men and women home. This is evident in his latest appointments to government dockets and departments.
On Friday 18 August, Ambassador Zachary Maburi Mwita, who was the Chairperson of the Board of Management of Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), was sent home as he was replaced by Joseah Kiplangat Cheruiyot, who was appointed to serve for a term of three years.
The purge continued and affected other KMTC board members, such as Naomi Kathure Mutua, Stephen Ochiel, Jennifer Kibagendi, and Fredrick Wamwaki were also sacked. They were replaced by Paul Cheboi, Eunice Karanja, Hardlyne Lusui, and Joseph Atonga.
At Kenya National Public Health Institute, David Nyokabi took over from Gerald Macharia as the non-executive chairperson for a term of three years.
Elsewhere, Kadhua Kahindi replaced Chris Kirubi’s son-in-law Andrew Musangi as the Public Procurement Regulatory Board Chairperson. Musangi was replaced due to his latest nomination as the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) chairperson.
On the other hand, Treasury CS Njuguna Ndung’u replaced three board members of the Unclaimed Financial Assets Authority (UFAA) where Mwai Kihu, Grace Tole, Njoroge Nganga, and Peter Kanyua were replaced by Benson Rono Benhard, Samuel Mkonu, Joyce Mutegi, and Rebecca Osogo.
Also, the Public Procurement Regulatory Board saw a series of shakeup where the CS revoked the appointment of Paul Otieno, Godfrey Kyalo Makau, Lydia Gachoya, and Allyce Esintele who were replaced by Patrick Ndirangu, Lucy Chepkemoi, Amos Makokha, and Ali Haji.
On the other hand, Energy CS Davis Chirchir made changes to the Kenya Pipeline Company Limited board by revoking the appointment of Kenneth Wathome, Elsie Mbugua, Jimmy Shiganga, Caroline Mugendi, and Frank Ireri and were replaced by Edward Musebe, Irene Wachira, Mutungwa Wambua, Jane Njeri Mwangi, and Joyce Emanikor, who will serve on the board for a period of three years.
