N. Imenti DC nominated to Nyeri Cabinet

29 May 2013, 12:25 Wangui Joseph

Imenti North District Commissioner Priscilla Muthoni Wanyiri is among ten executive members nominated to Nyeri County Cabinet by Governor Nderitu Gachagua.

Muthoni hails from Kieni constituency and holds a BA in Economics and Geography from University of Nairobi. She will head the Public Administration, Information and Communication docket.

Gachagua unveiled his Cabinet consisting of seven men and two women saying he will announce the remaining nominee soon.

“We have not received qualified person to head the Infrastructure docket. We have also not nominated Chief Secretary in charge of Government Operations,” said Gachagua at the Municipal Hall where he also named seven members of the County Public Service Board.

He revealed that his office received about 700 applications saying that was the reason he took much time to unveil the team since they had to scrutinize each applicant.

Gachagua has forwarded the nominees’ names to the County assembly for approval by County Representatives adding that was just the beginning of his work.

“We have the most qualified executive nominees in terms of education. Each has a Bachelors and Masters degree. The team is also gender and regionally balanced,” noted Gachagua.

Unlike other Governors, Gachagua went outside his borders to seek professionals saying that he wanted a team that can deliver and implement his manifesto.

“Kenya is a unitary country and one can work anywhere in the country,” he said.

The Governor assured local residents that the nominees have met the requirements of the integrity Act saying he worked with other bodies like Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to investigate them in bid to get a clean list.
