Kirinyaga County Assembly has rejected the nomination of Dr Timothy Theuri Kabaiku as Health CEC saying he is unqualified for the position.
The vetting and appointment committee claims the nominee lacks the requisite experience to hold the position.
Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru will now have to nominate another person to fill the vacant position.
County Assembly Majority leader James Murango said it was the unanimous decision of the vetting Committee that Theuri isn’t qualified for the position especially at a time when nurses are at loggerheads with the County Government.
The MCAs have now urged the County Government to nominate another person as soon as possible for vetting.
They however maintained that they will only confirm a qualified person for the position.
The MCAs argue that though the County health sector is in a crisis they would not be rushed to nominate a person who’s unqualified to hold the position and can’t solve the challenges facing the County.
Meanwhile the Laikipia County Assembly has launched a probe to the impeachment of County Executive Committee member for Finance and Economic planning Murungi Ndai.
The committee led by Marmanet ward MCA Simon Kanyutu is investigating allegations of abuse of office against the CEC.
