- In the list of 50 nominees, three CAS will work under deputy president Rigathi Gachagua while three others will be under prime cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
- The nominees will now be vetted by the National Assembly before being appointed by the President.
Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua has said that the money that President William Ruto will spend on Chief Administrative Secretaries is enough to lower the price of Unga.
Ruto on Thursday nominated 50 CASs to the office of the Deputy President, the Prime Cabinet Secretary and other offices.
Speaking on Friday at a public Baraza in Ruaka, Kiambu county, Karua said that they are allowed to protest according to the constitution.
"They have nominated 50 CASs, in the constitution assistant ministers are not allowed. The money they will receive is a lot which is enough to lower the price of unga so that your children do not sleep hungry," she said.
Karua added that just like other countries which take to the streets to fight for their rights, Kenyans too should come out on March 20 to protest.
In the list of 50 nominees, three CAS will work under deputy president Rigathi Gachagua while three others will be under prime cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
Ann Mwangi, Nicholas Rioba and Edwin Wandambusi have been nominated to serve under Rigathi's office.
Former nominated MP Isaac Mwaura, Sharif Ali and Rehema Hassan after Parliament approval will serve in Mudavadi's office.
The nominees will now be vetted by the National Assembly before being appointed by the President.
Others nominated in various offices are; ex-nominated senator Millicent Omanga who will serve as CAS at the Ministry of Interior and National Administration alongside Mohamud Ali and Samuel Tunai.
Former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero will serve in the Ministry of Investment and Trade, alongside Lilian Tomitom and Vincent Mogaka.
Taxpayers will cough nearly Sh460 million annually in salaries for the 50 CASs.
They are entitled to the same gross pay as Permanent secretaries whose pay was reviewed by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission to ShSh765,188 from Sh874.500.
