Kaya elders in Kwale County have thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for appointing Prof. Hamadi Boga as Agriculture and Research Principal Secretary (PS).
Led by their Chairman, Kasim Mnyeto, the elders termed the nomination a big honour to the Digo community.
They were addressing the media at Ukunda Showground on Thursday where they said the appointment of the Taita-Taveta Vice-Chancellor to the post was well received in the County.
However, the elders, appealed to President Kenyatta to appoint more people from the region into his government.
We laud the President for this good gesture but we also request him to consider the community in the pending appointments, said Mr. Mnyeto.
The County bagged two posts in the recent Presidential appointments with former County Trade Executive, Mrs. Safina Kwekwe being appointed PS Gender.
