By Linet Minayo in Kajiado County.
Former immediate Kajiado governor David Nkedianye has been appointed with immediate effect to chair the National Water Harvesting and Sewerage Authority.
The appointment contained in the latest copy of Kenya Gazette notice dated February 8 and signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta gives Nkedianye three years to sit at the helm of the authority. This comes only one day after KNU exclusively reported that during the recent meeting of Kajiado leaders with President Kenyatta at State House, Nkedianye’s fate was sealed.
Kajiado nominated senator, Mary Seneta, had told KNU that the leaders floated the name of Nkedianye and that of Julius Ntayia during the State House visit led by Governor Joseph Lenku.
During the visit, Nkedianye, who had earlier been invited by the President, was among several leaders locked out at the gates but presidential guards helped him gain access.
President Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, are on record during the 2017 repeat presidential election campaigns to have promised Nkedianye a State job.
Nkedianye, after failing to recapture his seat in the last general elections, has been keeping to himself and has not attended political rallies in the county.
