Others who were also appointed to the committee include Jeremiah Matagaro (Chairman), Wanjiku Wakogi (Secretary), Winfred Kaburu, Cecil Kuyo, Cyrus Gituai, Tom Maina Macharia, Roselyn B. Tumpeyo and Gloria Ndeke.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by Section 26 (1) and (3) of the State Corporations Act, I, Uhuru Kenyatta, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces of the Republic of Kenya appoint…to be members of the State Corporations Advisory Committee, for a period of three (3) years, with effect from October 14, 2019,” read part of the notice.

The State Corporation Advisory Committee mandate is to advise the Government on all matters about the general administration of State Corporation.
