Chelugui is the only CS retained from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Cabinet by the Kenya Kwanza administration.

He was first appointed as the Cabinet secretary for Water and Irrigation before being moved to the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection in 2020 where he has been serving until his nomination to the Cooperatives docket.

Chelugui had vied for the Baringo Governorship in 2013 and Baringo Senator in 2017 but lost in the two elections.

He is one of the last nominees to appear before the appointments committee, which is assessing their suitability to hold the dockets to which they have been appointed.

Salim Mvurya, who has been proposed to head the Mining docket, Florence Bore (Labour), and Mercy Wanjau are among those who will be vetted on Saturday.

In addition to declaring their respective financial net worths, the nominees must present the committee with their original IDs, academic and professional certificates, and letters of clearance and compliance from EACC, KRA, HELB, DCI, and CRB.
