Nakuru’s much awaited list of 10 nominees has finally been presented to the assembly by the speaker.
The list Governor Lee Kinyanjui submitted is of three women and seven men.
Raymond Kamen, who was chief of staff, is the only one from the team that served in Kinuthia Mbugua’s administration.
Others who served for the last five years applied but did not make it to the final list.
Kamen is the nominee for education, ICT and e-government, Peter Kiplagat for trade, Lucy Wanjiku for lands, Mwangangi Mwania for public service and Joseph Irungu for Infrastructure.
Halima Gabara is the hopeful for the youth and culture department, Festus Kipkoech for water, Immaculate Njuthe for agriculture, Jonah Mwangi for health and Joseph Kuina for finance
The nominees will face the county assembly committee on appointments for vetting.
Speaker Joel Maina will chair the team that will undertake vetting from Monday.
Kinyanjui will likely face backlash from communities whose members are not among the 10.
Nakuru is considered a cosmopolitan county as members of major tribes live there.
Mbugua’s list of candidates was thrown out with MCAs saying proper channels were not followed in selection.
