NAIROBI, March 28 (Reuters) - Kenya has short-listed five candidates for the post of central bank governor and will interview them next month, the Public Service Commission said.
The successful candidate will replace Njuguna Ndung’u, whose term ended earlier this month after eight years in office.
Those invited for interview are Geoffrey Mwau, the Economics Secretary at the National Treasury, Peninah Wanjira Kariuki, and Edward Sambili, who was the deputy central bank governor.
Also on the list is current central bank deputy governor Haron Sirima and Patrick Ngugi Njoroge.
The Public Service Commission, in charge of recruiting government staff, said in a statement on Friday they and candidates for the post of chairman, will be interviewed on April 7. (Reporting by George Obulutsa, editing by David Evans)
