The vetting process for the County Executive Committee nominees in Nandi County was concluded on Monday, with one nominee for the docket of Lands, Environment, and Natural Resources, Jacob Tanui, being interviewed before a camera after he was ordered to appear one more time before the panel following a petition against him. The seven-member vetting committee was chaired by County speaker Joshua Kiptoo.

Tanui first appeared before the vetting panel on Friday last week, but the petition, based on integrity issues led to the decision to have him appear a second time, on Monday.

Those grilled yesterday include Hillary Koech for the Transport and Infrastructure position, Stanley Baliach for the Education slot, Valentine Chumo for Tourism, Culture and Social Welfare, Wilson Kibor for Agriculture and Cooperative Development and Elly Kurgat for Sports and Youth Affairs respectively. The five nominees presented themselves better compared to the previous five who appeared before the panel on Friday, given that they were more conversant with their respective dockets under consideration.

Moreover, one nominee, Teresa Morogo, who is a candidate for the Public Administration, Public Service and E-government, couldn’t give out her presentations more clearly. She wasn’t in a position to propose a workable structure to usher in the new County administration. The vetting committee is now supposed to come up with a report concerning the whole process and conclusions which will be tabled in the assembly for discussion and approval or rejection.
