The National Assembly Tuesday approved the nomination of Noordin Haji as the Director General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS).
This is after National Assembly’s Defence and Intelligence Committee recommended his approval for the job.
The Committee’s Chairperson Nelson Koech said their decision was informed by Haji’s suitability and integrity for the job.
“Having considered the suitability, capacity and integrity of the nominee and pursuant to Section 8(2) of the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) Act (No. 33 of 2011) as read together with Section 7 (1) of the National Intelligence Service Act, 2012, the Committee recommends that: The National Assembly APPROVES the nomination of Mr. Noordin Mohamed Haji, CBS, OGW for appointment as the Director-General of the National Intelligence Service.”
Haji now awaits formal appointment by President William Ruto to succeed the outgoing NIS Director General Major General (Rtd) Philip Wachira Kameru.
