Yusuf Mbuno has been appointed to take up the position of National Government- Constituency Development Fund Board Chief Executive after serving in an acting capacity for the last 11 years.
This is after National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yattani gazetted the appointment. According to the CS, Mbuno will serve for a period of three years, with effect from May 7.
Members of the National Assembly last month unanimously approved the nomination of Mbuno saying they were correcting an injustice which has been meted out on the civil servant who they described to be efficient, qualified and a servant leader.
As the substantive accounting officer of the devolved fund, Mbuno will be mandated to oversee billions of shillings allocated to the 290 constituencies every year.
Since 2003/04, the Fund supported projects mainly in the areas of education, health, agriculture, roads, security, sports environment sectors and other national government residual functions.
