Also nominated is Kevit Desai as PS for Vocational and Technical Training (TVET) under the Ministry of Education. Dr Desai served as the chairman of the Permanent Working Group on TVET in Kenya.


The President also appointed former State House comptroller Lawrence Ntoye Lenayapa ambassador to The Netherlands.

Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, in letters dated February 7 and February 9, informed the Speaker of the National Assembly about the nominations, paving the way for their vetting.

National Assembly Leader of Majority Aden Duale yesterday said the vetting could be done today.

Unlike Cabinet secretaries, PSs are vetted by the respective departmental committees that oversight their dockets.
