Johnson Muthama Resigns from UDA Chairmanship to Pursue PSC Seat


The former senator from Machakos and chairman of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party Johnson Muthama have resigned from his post.

The action was taken as a result of Muthama’s nomination for a position on the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC), which required approval from lawmakers.

Muthama said that he submitted his resignation to the party secretariat on February 17 and stated that he did so to allow for a smooth vetting procedure.

On December 30, 2022, the Public Service Commission (PSC) conducted interviews with eight additional candidates before recommending Muthama for the PSC seat.

Speaker Amason Kingi then sent the nominee to the Senate’s Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee.

The screening procedure will be carried out by the committee, which is led by Senator Hillary Sigei of Bomet.

If accepted, Muthama will serve on the commission for five years as a non-parliamentarian representing the general public.

He will join the other seven senators who took the oath of office in November 2022.

Samuel Chepkonga, who resigned from the commission to win his Ainabkoi parliamentary seat, would be replaced by Muthama in that post.
