Makueni County Assembly committees approve nominees

Two committees at the Makueni County Assembly on Wednesday vetted 13 nominees who have been nominated to serve in different positions in Makueni County government.

The first committee on Lands and Environment chaired by Wote/Nziu Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) Felix Mateso vetted four names to serve in the Makueni County Climate Change Steering Committee.

Those vetted included Salome Ndunge, Linet Kyengo, Jefferson Laki, and John Nzioka who will serve in the committee on resource mobilisation and policy issues.

During the vetting, the committee also vetted eight members who were nominated to serve in the Wote Municipal and Emali-Sultan Hamud Municipal Boards respectively.

Those vetted were Benjamin Masungwa, Romeo Ndeveni, Benjamin Wambua Mutua, Daniel Kisyanga, Paul Maundu Mutua, Everlin Mulewa Kimuli Angela Kiamba and Engineer Patrick Mutua Mutuku.

The Health Committee chaired by Kikumbulyo North Ward MCA Jackson Mbalu vetted Dr. Harvey Mulei Mbithi, a nominee to Chief Officer in Health Human Resource Management and Administration, a new position created at the Health Department in the county.

On his part, Dr. Mulei advocated for the adoption of modern technologies by automating healthcare services to allow monitoring and stringent oversight to curb corruption and theft of drugs at the health facilities.

“As witnessed in the private sector, the integration of computerised systems offers unparalleled transparency. We must harness the power of technology to safeguard our health resources and uphold the tenets of integration and accountability,” said Mbithi.

The nominees will have to wait for approval after the two committees table their names in their report at the Makueni County Assembly.
