MPs postpone recess to vet Nkaissery

05 December 2014, 10:50 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The National Assembly has extended House sittings by a week to enable the vetting and approval of the newly nominated Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery.

The National Assembly was to go on recess from December 04, 2014 until February, 2015 but the postponement of the recess to December 11 will allow the House committee on Appointments chaired by Speaker Justin Muturi to vet Nkaissery and table the report for MPs’ approval of his appointment.

The National Assembly Deputy Minority Leader, Jokoyo Midiwo who seconded the motion to postpone the recess expressed his confidence in Nkaissery's ability to strengthen the weakening Security sector.

“I stand to second the motion to extend the sittings for the approval of my friend Nkaissery to head the Interior docket. Personalities in the Security positions are not the cause of witnessed insecurity but the structure of our security systems,” said Midiwo.

“I hope Nkaissery will relay this message on the need to restructure our security systems to the President when officially confirmed as the Cabinet Secretary,” he added.   

The National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi, on Wednesday directed the House committee on Appointments to vet the Kajiado Central MP, Joseph Nkaissery within two weeks following his nomination as the Interior Cabinet Secretary.

Muturi, who was responding to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s letter addressed to his office for the House regarding Nkaissery’s nomination, requested the responsible committee to timely notify the nominee and the general public of the time and place for convening the approval hearings.

“His Excellence the President seeks the approval of this House on the nominee for appointment to be the Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government,” said Muturi.

“I hereby refer the message from His Excellence the President to the Committee on Appointments to undertake the necessary approval hearings. The committee may thereafter commence the necessary approval hearings and should submit their report to this House on or before December 16, 2014,” said Muturi.

Section 8 (I) of the Public Appointments Act requires the National Assembly to either approve or reject nominees within 14 days from the date the notification of nomination was given.
