The Kisumu County Government has withdrawn a list of nominees picked to serve at the County Public Service Board.

The list had been sent to the Assembly for vetting and verification but was quickly recalled after an applicants- former Nyakach MP Peter Odoyo and others raised questions over it.

The nominees were selected by a private firm hired to conduct the interviews.

Yesterday, the County Assembly confirmed the list had been recalled but said the list was not yet an official document because it had not been tabled in the House.

''It was still following the due documentation process,'' said speaker Mr Onyango Oloo.

He declined to comment further, saying the list had not been officially tabled in the House.

MCAs Prisca Auma and Florence Olang'o (nominated) told The Standard that the MCAs were also taken by the surprise withdrawal of the list.

Mr Odoyo claimed the appointment of the Board members has been shrouded in controversy.

It could not immediately be confirmed why the executive recalled he list they had submitted to the Assembly.
