"...all the nominees exhibited impressive knowledge of topical and legal issues touching on the respective dockets and have the requisite abilities, qualifications and experience," said the report of the committee chaired by Speaker Justin Muturi.

Majority Leader Aden Duale (Garissa Township) tabled the report in the National Assembly showing that they were all clean on integrity having been cleared by all statutory bodies.

"All the nominees satisfy the requirements of Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya on leadership and integrity having been cleared by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and the Credit Reference Bureau (CRB)," read the report.

The report said none of the nominees had been charged in court for the last three years.
"Kiunjuri who has since been discharged of the incitement to violence charges following withdrawal of Criminal Case No. 278 of 2000 vide a court order by the Chief Magistrate at Milimani Courts dated 14th December, 2015 pursuant to section 87(a) of the Criminal Procedure Code," read the report.
