The president has until end of next week to forward one name to the National Assembly for vetting and approval, paving way for him to unveil Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko’s successor.

Should the National Assembly reject the DPP nominee, the selection panel will start a fresh recruitment. It will start with the advertisement, shortlisting and interviews.

The seven-member panel consists of Kennedy Kihara (Office of the President), Maryann Njau (Attorney-General’s office) and Ms Lilian Omollo (Public Service ministry).

Others are Ms Kagwiria Mbogori (Kenya National Commission on Human Rights), Dr Muli (Law Society of Kenya), Mr Francis Atwoli (Central Organisation of Trade Unions) and Halakhe Waqo (Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission).
