Dr George Jalang'o Midiwo and former Wajir Woman Representative Fatuma Gedi are among leaders appointed to the membership of the Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA).

Their appointment comes days after they missed out on the prestigious representation at the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) elections.

Through a statement, National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang'ula announced that the two were among the seven leaders who had secured positions for the aforementioned post.

Others appointed to the position are Benedict Muasya Mutiso, Wilfred Koitamt Olekina, Isabel Nyambura Waiyaki, Hadija Nganyi Juma and Jonas Misto Vincent.

"It is notified to all members of the National Assembly that, on Friday, November 25, and Saturday, November 26, 2022, I received communication from the leadership of the majority and minority parties conveying the selection of seven persons for appointment to the membership of the commission on Revenue Allocation in accordance with article 215(2)(b) and (c) of the constitution as listed," the statement reads in parts.

Following their appointment, the afore-listed members will undergo the necessary vetting process.

CRA is an independent agency whose core mandate is to recommend the basis of equitable sharing of revenues raised nationally between the national and county governments.

The commission had advertised positions and urged Kenyans to apply. On Friday, November 25, 2022, the clerks of both the Senate and the National Assembly announced that 139 applicants in the senate and 37 applicants in the national assembly applied for the position.
