After President Uhuru Kenyatta declared him a wise and great church leader, former ACK archbishop Eliud Wabukala, was on Friday listed among the six candidates set to replace sacked EACC Chairman Philip Kinisu.

Making the announcement on its website, the Public Service Commission (PSC) invited Wabukala and five other candidates for interviews on November 17 at Commission House in Nairobi.

After Wabukula retired in June 2016, Kenyatta termed him as one of the great church leaders in the country.

“The peace that has reigned in the church across the country, the harmony that has prevailed in the church throughout the country is a great legacy that he leaves behind. Indeed it is a foundation on which those that come after you, will need to build on,” the President affirmed.

Reverend Dr Jackson Nasoore Ole Sapit was later appointed to replace him in early July and the Head of State advised him to follow in his predecessor’s shoes.

“You have very large shoes to fill. Your predecessor did us all proud as Kenyans. After listening to you, am convinced that you are equal to the task. And based on the firm foundation of your predecessor, you will be able to build even a stronger, firmer and greater church for all of us,” President Kenyatta told the new ACK Bishop after his appointment.

Wabukala has also been invited by the government to give his ideas on ways of fighting corruption.

The EACC post was declared vacant on August 31 after Kinisu vacated office on allegations of corruption.

The rest of the candidates include: Willian Kirwa, Philemon Mwaisaka, Peter Ondieki, Rose Osoroand Erastus Rweria. The commission also invited members of the public to give their opinions on the candidates.
