Nyamira Deputy Governor nominee James Gesami’s name is scheduled to be debated after the assembly proceeded to a short recess on Thursday.
The approval is yet to take place, since the debate on the approval that was supposed to happen on Thursday never happened.
The Deputy Governor nominee Dr James Gesami’s appointment was rejected by both the assembly’s appointment committee and the whole assembly earlier in February prompting Governor Nyaribo to hold several meetings with the MCAs, in a bid to convince the MCAs to approve his deputy governor nominee’s name.
Gesami’s name was tabled for debating on Thursday but the debate never took place and the nominee’s name was committed to the assembly’s appointment committee by speaker Moffat Teya.
This means that Governor Nyaribo will still keep working without a deputy governor despite several efforts to try and convince the MCAs to approve the nominee for him, efforts that have gone futile for a third time now.
Governor Nyaribo is however fully convinced that some political forces are behind his disappointments but maintains that he will keep on working for the people of Nyamira County saying those who want to frustrate him do not have the people of Nyamira at heart.
“I understand that a section of our leaders is using our Mcas to stall the development plans of our county, but let me assure our people that we shall work for you despite any challenge that shall come our way,” Nyaribo told journalists.
He maintained that handouts to MCAs will not affect his plans for the people who are looking up to him for development.
