The County Assembly Committee on Appointments in its meeting on Tuesday hosted a witness by the name Sammy Mutua Kisilu. The witness presented an affidavit to the Clerk of Assembly which was received on 6th March, 2020 with regard to the interview for persons nominated for positions of a chairperson and members of the County Public Service Board.
The witness stated that he believed that the selection panel did not conduct the selection of the most suitable candidates for various reasons. Key among the allegations given across the six candidates were lack of adequate work experience and academic qualifications.
The witness under oath was however not able to provide documentary evidence as requested by the Committee during the one hour interrogation. The Chairperson of the committee Hon. George Ndotto (Speaker) assured Mr. Kisilu that the committee will cross examine the information provided and put into consideration the findings while compiling a report on the 6 candidates.
