None of former Kajiado Governor David Nkediany’s executives have made it to the new cabinet.

Governor Joseph ole Lenku yesterday nominated three more people to serve as county executive committee members.

They are Lenku Seki (Trade, Culture, Tourism and Wildlife), Jackline Koin (Education and Vocational Training) and Alvin Kimani (Youth, Gender and Social Services).

 On Monday Lenku had nominated Moses Narok for the position of Agriculture, Livestock Development and Fisheries executive and Hamilton Parseina as Lands executive.

A little over a week ago he nominated Alex Kilowua (Roads), Carolyn Chege (Public Service), Esther Somoire (Health), Joseph Sankale (Water and Irrigation) and Michael Semera (Treasury).

The appointees are awaiting the county assembly’s approval.

Lenku, in a surprise move, appointed Somoire of ODM. She ran for Kajiado woman rep on the ODM ticket but lost to Janet Teyiaa of Jubilee.

The CEC is dominated by members of the Kikuyu and Maasai communities from across the five subcounties.

All the 10 nominees are likely to be approved by the assembly, where Jubilee has the majority.
