Ford-Kenya chairman, Mr Musikari Kombo, has finally been nominated to Parliament only days after threatening to quit the PNU coalition.

Kombo, who lost his Webuye seat to ODM candidate, Mr Alfred Sambu, replaced Ms Beatrice Wasike, who had been initially nominated.

Kombo clinched the slot after meeting President Kibaki at State House on Thursday.

Wasike was initially the Ford-Kenya nominee but sources said she traded her position with Kombo after she was promised an appointment as an ambassador.

The other PNU nominees — who include PNU campaign manager, Mr George Nyamweya and Ms Maison Leshoomo from Samburu — remained unchanged.

The Kanu nominee, Ms Amina Abdalla, has not been affected by the latest changes that have caused the delay in the gazetting of the nominated MPs.

The changes are contained in a letter to the Electoral Commission of Kenya dated February 14, and signed by PNU chairman, Mr Jasper Nyaboga, and treasurer, Mr Wilfred Apencha.

“This is to inform you that the PNU council has since dropped the name Beatrice Naliaka Wasike and replaced it with that of Musikari Kombo Nazi,” read the letter.

The letter further says the names form the final list of nominated Members of Parliament as sanctioned by PNU.
