The long-serving public servant and former Permanent Secretary was sworn in on Tuesday at State House in Mombasa. President Kenyatta witnessed the swearing in ceremony, where he ordered the resumption of the youth empowerment programme.

Mr. Ndubai holds a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Commerce – accounting option – from the University of Nairobi. He is due to graduate with a PhD in Performance Contracting, Measurement and Public Service Delivery from the same university.

His public service career spans over 30 years. He has undertaken numerous training courses and programmes including Certification in Corruption Prevention from the Marcus Evans Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa.

He will replace Nelson Githinji who stepped down from the position in November 2015, after Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko ordered for his prosecution over financial malpractice in the agency.
