Nyachae family boasts 5 parastatal appointments

29 April 2015, 18:32 William Korir

Nairobi - Call it the way you want but former Cabinet Minister Simeon Nyachae had five members of his family named in public appointments announced by president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Nyachae, a serious supporter of the president during the 2013 General Elections, already has a son, Charles Nyachae in the public service. He is the chairman of the Constitution Implementation Commision CIC.

Five more Nyachae's though were appointed in the list of 302 officials named Monday by State House to take up public office.

They are:

Daughter Judy Nyachae; Export Processing Zone board.

Son Kenneth Nyachae; Kenya Civil Aviation Authority board.

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.

Nyachae, the Ford People chairman's support in the 2013 elections helped bridge the gap between the president and CORD leader Raila Odinga in Gusii land.
