President William Ruto has appointed Renson Mulele Ingonga as the next Director of Public Prosecutions.
The President sent his name to the National Assembly for confirmation.
Ruto chose Ingonga from a list of 15 people interviewed by the Public Service Commission.
The maintenance exercise lasted for two days and ended on August 2.
If approved, Ingonga will replace Noordin Haji.
The position of DPP was left vacant after the current former president Haji was appointed Director General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), by President William Ruto.
Haji assumed the post of DPP in August 2018. The DPP’s term is non-renewable for eight years.
Before being appointed, Ingonga served as the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions.
Former IEBC commissioner Thomas Letangule, Francis Andayi, lawyer Danstan Omari, Taib Ali, Jacinta Nyamosi, Victor Mule and Tabitha Ouya are among those interviewed for the role.
Others were David Ruto, Winston Ngaira, Peter Mailanyi, Lilian Okumu, Jacob Ondari, James Ndegwa and David Okachi.
