Niece Violet Omwamba; Lake Victoria South Water Services board.
Nephew Christopher Ayienda; Kenya Co-operative Creameries Limited board.
Nephew Samwel Nyanchama; Energy Regulatory Commission board.
The appointments will definitely see super support land the president's way in Gusii land come the 2017 elections.
" The president has secured Nyachae's support come 2017 and that is reward for Nyachae for the support during the 2013 elections after he went against the wishes of most Gusii people," Bosibori Onyancha, a Kisii based political scientist says.
" The five appointments will raise eyebrows but those within the Nyachae axis will definitely support Uhuru come 2017 and that matters alot, he adds.
