For the umpteenth time, the President has affirmed his strong affinity to old minds with his recent choice of candidates to occupy lucrative state jobs.
In the recent season, President Uhuru nominated 72 year old, retired reverend, Samuel Kobia to chair National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC). Dr. Kobia will pick the reigns from 69 year old, Ole Kaparo, whose term ended last year.
Kobia was nominated alongside; former Rangwe MP Philip Onkundi, Former Vihiga Woman Rep Dorcas Kedogo, Samuel Kona, Peris Wambui Nyutu, Abdulaziz Ali Farrah, Danvas Makori and Fatuma Tanyara, to sit in the commission.
The above nominees are expected to be tabled before the National Assembly for approval before taking over from the former team whose tenure expired in August 2018.
NCIC is a statutory body which was established under the National Cohesion and Integration Act of 2008, to promote peace, cohesion and sustainable development in the country. The commission is responsible for flagging ill ethnic utterances that have the capacity to spark tribal clashes.
