In a communique to MPs, Speaker Justin Muturi said the appointments by the president now await Parliament’s approval.

“Section 8 of the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) Act requires that a Committee shall consider a nomination and table a report for debate and decision in the House within fourteen (14) days from the date of notification,” reads the memo.

“In this regard, and in accordance with the provisions of Article 259(5)(a) of the Constitution as read together with section 5 of the said Act, the seven (7) days’ notification to the public shall start running on the day following the day when the notice is published in the dailies.”
