The search for Kenya’s next Audior General has entered day 2, two years later
Led by the former administrator at the National Treasury Mutua Kilaka, the comittee continued with interviewing contenders for the Auditor General’s post.
The exercise that commenced Tuesday will seek to replace General Edward Ouko, who exited the seat in August 2019.
Yesterday, five candidates; Dr Leonard Lari from Busia, Edwin Kipkoech Kamar from Elgeyo Marakwet, Benson Ochieng from Homa Bay, Silvester Ngei Kiini From Makueni and Elizabeth Wangui Nguringa from Nyeri were interviewed on Tuesday.
On Wednesday the team interviewed Idris Abdi Abdullahi from Wajir, Meshak Obiero Onyango from Siaya, Nancy Janet Kabui from Nyeri, Paul Wangila Masinde from Bungoma and Dennis Theuri Kariuki are facing the panel.
Three names will be forwarded to the president and the scores of each of the 10 candidates will be submitted to parliament for vetting.
This comes after the defunct panel that was supposed to select a suitable candidate, led by Sammy Onyango, failed to get a suitor to fill the position.
Office of the Auditor General of Kenya is an independent body that is incharge of the management of public resources.
