Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has slammed MPs who are interviewing Cabinet secretaries.
So far, the National Assembly Committee on Appointments has assessed five applicants, but Miguna has not seen any critical examination of them.
He claimed that the events thus far were only soundbites designed to placate their bosses.
“Placate, MPs, elevate your interrogation standards. What Members of Parliament are involved in is not vetting. I have not seen any rigorous and critical investigation of any of the Cabinet Secretary nominees. All I see and hear are soundbites intended to please the runaway conman,” he said on Tuesday.
His remarks came after parliament examined President William Ruto’s original pick of five Cabinet members.
Aden Duale (Defense), Alfred Mutua (Foreign and Diaspora Affairs), Musalia Mudavadi (Prime Cabinet Secretary), Justin Muturi (Attorney General), and Alice Wahome are among them (Water, Sanitation and Irrigation).
The five nominees provided varied information about their personal and professional life as well as their net worth to the 15-member panel on Monday.
Additionally, they provided details on how they will handle significant problems affecting their separate dockets.
The vetting panel will interview the second round of the 24 cabinet nominees on Tuesday.
They are Moses Kuria, Davis Chirchir, Kithure Kindiki, Njuguna Ndung’u, Aisha Jumwa, and Kithure Kindiki (Interior and National Administration), as well as Njuguna Ndung’u, National Treasury, and Planning (Trade, Investment and Industry).
