Central, Rift Valley get 40pc of board slots - 11 months ago, 16 Maý 10:31

Edwin Mutai

Central and Rift Valley regions dominate the list of beneficiaries of the 808 board seats of State corporations, a parliamentary report shows.

The Public Investments Committee (PIC) said the report paints a picture of skewed appointments to the various State corporation boards.

Abdulswamad Nassir, who chairs PIC, said Central region counties of Kiambu, Muranga, Kirinyaga, Nyeri and Nyandarua top the list with 157 board positions translating to 19 per cent of all slots.

Ten counties in the Rift Valley had 165 board seats, meaning the two regions account for 40 per cent of directors in State firms.

The two regions voted overwhelmingly for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee coalition in the last year’s elections.

Mr Kenyatta has his roots in Central Kenya while Deputy President William Ruto comes from the Rift Valley.

The appointment of people from the Presidency’s region in government is historical and the 2010 Constitution sought to reverse this trend.
