Wafula Chebukati’s wife shortlisted for the PS position


IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati’s wife Mary Chebukati Wanyonyi is among those shortlisted for the positions of Principal Secretaries (PS) by the Public Service Commission (PSC).

Also on the list are around 20 PSs who served under the Jubilee administration as well as members of President William Ruto’s economic advisory council.

While releasing the list, the Public Service Commission (PSC) stated that they had shortlisted 477 names from 9,154 applicants who had shown interest in the vacant posts.

PSC at the same time invited members of the public to give their views on the suitability of the candidates.

The PSC said the interviews will be held from October 12 to 22, 2022.

Currently, there are 44 Principal Secretaries serving in different State departments, but the President has increased the figure to 49.

Some of the poll losers and close allies of President Ruto who are perhaps looking for a reward for the role they played in the head of state’s State House journey include former Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir and his Kiminini counterpart Chris Wamalwa.

The known Principal Secretaries who served in the Uhuru government are Dr Chris Kiptoo, Esther Koimett, Peter Kaberia, Belio Kipsang, Julius Jwan, Saitoti Torome, Francis Owino, Jerome Ochieng, Charles, Margaret Mwakimu, Nelson Marwa, Fred Sigor (Wildlife).

Those who also served in the previous regime include Joseph Irungu, Ali Noor Ismail, Andrew Tuimur, Micah Powon, Simon Nabukwesi and Sarah Ruto among others.
