Ex-Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa had fraud charges against her totaling Sh19 million dropped this morning by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Ruto nominated Jumwa to the CS of Public Service and Gender docket. Before her appointment, Jumwa faced murder and corruption charges.
Several of the nominees for cabinet posts have been challenged by the MPs, who have also raised concerns about their qualifications to serve in such roles.
However, they have pledged to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the cabinet nominations during the vetting process.
