Nairobi - Daily Nation reports Cord MPs, who had threatened to withdraw from all parliamentary teams reversed their decision and participated in the vetting of Cabinet nominees.
Among those who participated was Cord deputy Minority Leader Jakoyo Midiwo. Those who faced the committee were Ms Ann Waiguru (Devolution and Planning), Ms Raychelle Omamo (Defence), Ms Amina Mohammed (Foreign) and Prof Jacob Kaimenyi (Education).
The nominees were spared the hard questions after National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi informed the committee that the memoranda submitted by the public were inadmissible because they lacked sworn affidavits.
