This is after Speaker of National Assembly Moses Wetangula wrote back to the President, saying there is no constitutional requirement for nominees to be vetted.

“It is notified that the Speaker of the National Assembly has referred back to the appointing authority the Transmittal of the nominee for appointment to the rank of Chief Administrative Secretaries,” said Hussein.

The memorandum states as follows.

“The obligation to respect, uphold and defend the constitution enjoins the House to refrain from assuming and discharging a role that it has not been expressely assigned by the constitution or written law. In that regard, the National Assembly is unable to vet the nominees in the absence of an express constitutional or statutory requirement to do so,” the memo read..
