Dr Gumato Ukur Yatani, wife to Treasury CS Ukur Yatani, on Friday landed two lucrative state jobs, courtesy of appointments made by two of her husband’s colleagues.

The November 15th Kenya Gazette indicated Dr Yatani had been picked to chair the council of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).

The appointment was made by Education CS Prof George Magoha and is valid for a period of three years.

In the same gazette notice , Dr Yatani was appointed by Trade CS Peter Munya to serve as a member of the Taskforce on Standards And Quality Infrastructure Reforms in the country.

She previously served as Marsabit First Lady while her husband was Governor and more recently, as a commissioner at the National Gender and Equality Commission (NGEC).

Dr Yatani had been shortlisted for the position of commissioner at the National Lands Commission but President Uhuru Kenyatta did not submit her name to Parliament for approval.
