The constitution of Kenya, 2010 reconstituted the commission with a redefined and expanded mandate. Therefore the membership of Public Service Commission in Kenya consists of the following: a chairperson, a vice chairperson and seven other members appointed by the president with approval of the National Assembly.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated Ambassador Antony Mwaniki as public service commission chairperson. A parliamentary committee will now conduct approvals hearings. Antony is currently Kenya's Ambassador in Cuba.

He concurrently serves as the High Commissioner, Ambassador and permanent representative of Kenya to Jamaica, Barbados, At. Kitts & Nevis, Guyana, the Dominican Republic and Caricom.
