Nairobi - Barely a month after former Finance Permanent Secretary Joseph Kinyua was appointed Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service. CORD MP's voiced their opinions in the National Assembly calling for a vetting in the manner Kinyua was appointed into the positions,Capital FM reports.

Kinyua is the boss of all the public servants in the country in his position as head of public service. The MP's felt that Kinyua did not go through the correct procedure in order to be appointed and that it was in fact illegal.

The MP's main issue was that while President Kenyatta was free to elect a person to become Chief of Staff, it was the position of Public Service position that the National Assembly should have a part in electing the individual. Another issue the parliamentarians had , was that Kinyua hailed from the same region as Kenyatta and this may cause tribalism.
