President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated Ms Nancy Janet Kabui Gathungu as the new Auditor General, awaiting approval by Parliament.
In a statement Friday, Spokesperson Kanze Dena says Ms Gathungu was the first among the top three candidates presented to the President for nomination by the Recruitment Panel for the Selection of the Auditor General as set out in law.
She will serve to serve single 8-year term upon approval.
The office of the AG fell vacant in August 2019 following the retirement of Edward Ouko after his 8-year term expired.
