Alfred Mutua appoints ministers without ward reps' approval
Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua on Friday appointed seven ministers despite lack of approval by the county assembly.
Dr Mutua cited section 9 of the Public Appointments (County Assemblies Approval) Act, in making the appointments, saying the members are deemed to have been approved after the lapse of the 21 days from the date he submitted the names.
Section 9 states: “Unless otherwise provided in any law, a committee shall consider a nomination and table its report in the County Assembly for debate and decision within twenty-one sitting days from the date on which the committee first sits to consider the nomination.”
