Parliament vets PSC chair nominee

Stephen Kirogo says he will seek to entrench values at the Public Service Commission should parliament endorse his nomination as the chair of the commission amid questions over his advanced age.

Kirogo who was vetted by Parliament on Monday is looking to replace Margaret Kobia who has since been appointed to the cabinet.

Having served in various capacities in government,  Kirogo was on Monday vetted by Parliament for the position of the chairperson of the Public Service Commission.

Kirogo who turned 60 in January put to task over why he should be appointed despite the constitution capping the retirement age of civil servants at 60.

Kirogo who currently serves as the Principal Administrative Secretary to the Cabinet said he would turn around the image of Public Service and make it effective.

The nominee told MPs he supports the proposed lifestyle audit for all public officers and that he will prioritize the war on graft should he be appointed to the Public Service.

Kirogo is looking to replace Margaret Kobia as the Chairperson of the Public Service Commission after the latter was appointed to the Cabinet.

Meanwhile, 14 other nominees for various positions in government will be vetted by Parliament this week, among them former Salaries and Remuneration Commission Chairperson Sarah Serem.

Serem has been nominated as Kenya’s Ambassador to China. Other notable nominees include Ndegwa Muhoro and Manoah Esipisu who have been nominated as Kenya’s Ambassadors to Malaysia and the United Kingdom respectively.
