Opiyo Wandayi, the leader of the minority, wrote to Moses Wetangula, the speaker of the National Assembly, to announce the nomination of Mishi Mboko and Patrick Makau to the influential positions, while John Waluke, the MP for Sirisia, would be replaced by Okong’o Omogeni, a member of the ODM.
In the National Assembly, “I am happy to announce that Mishi Mboko and Patrick Makau have been nominated to serve on the PSC on behalf of the minority party.” reads the letter.
Since ODM already had two seats in PSC, chaired by the National Assembly speaker, reports indicated that Jubilee was adamant about Waluke’s nomination.
Jeremiah Kioni, the secretary general of the Jubilee Party, wrote to Wetangula and insisted that Waluke had been nominated for the PSC position despite the fact that he had not been.
In addition to the Raila-Uhuru coalition’s complaints, other parties in the government voiced their displeasure with the allocation of House committee seats.
Adan Keynan, an MP from Eldas, and David Pkosing, an MP from Pokot South and the Kenya Union Party, are both vying for a spot on the Public Investment Committee.
