President William Ruto has nominated Renson Igonga as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to replace now National Intelligence Services (NIS) boss, Noordin Haji.
Before his nomination, Ingonga worked as an Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions.
In an announcement made on Thursday by the National Assembly Speaker, Moses Wetang’ula in parliament, Andrew Musangi was also nominated by the President as Chairman of the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).
