MPs approve Wamalwa appointment

10 June 2015, 13:51 William Korir

Nairobi - Members of Parliament have approved the nomination of Eugene Wamalwa as Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary.

The MP's under the House Nominations Committee rubber-stamped Wamalwa's appointment by President Uhuru Kenyatta Wednesday after vetting the former New Ford Kenya chairman.

Wamalwa, in defending his nomination for the new position said that he will not contest the 2017 Presidential race.

Wamalwa made the declaration Tuesday that he does not have any wish to run for any political position in the 2017 elections and that he is only focused on his new role as Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary.

The former New Ford Kenya chairman said that the role of CS, as nominated by President Uhuru Kenyatta was important to him as he will get the chance to serve Kenyans.

" I have no interest in political positions in the 2017 General Elections, none at all," Wamalwa said during vetting for his position in Nairobi.

Wamalwa was being vetted by the Parliamentary Committee on nominations led by Speaker Justin Muturi where he stated that he was willing to set aside his political ambitions to serve Kenyans.

" It is an honour to be nominated by the President and I will do my very best to ensure that the ministry is a success," he added.

The fact that Wamalwa says he will not vie for any political seat will likely mean that NFK will negotiate for a part in one of the various alliances that will be formed in the run up to the elections.

Observers believe that Wamalwa's appointment will likely mean NFK will join up with President Kenyatta's Jubilee Alliance Party JAP.

He also declared that he is worth KES 400 million and would not be motivated by money in taking up the position.
