Nairobi - The appointment of Mohammed Abduba Dida as the chairman of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) Board has been revoked.

Dida, who vied for presidency in the March 4 polls, had been appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta in a special gazette notice, dated December 31, 2013, as the chairman of the CDF board, a position he would have held for eight months, The Standard reports.
