Vetting of the CECs that were nominated to various departments by Governor Amos Nyaribo are being
vetted by the Nyamira County assembly appointment committee.
However, Nyamira County Assembly MCAs had plotted to reject the names of the CECs who were
nominated by Governor Amos Nyaribo.
The leaders say their clans were not well represented in the nominees among other factors that they said
Nyaribo never consulted before presenting the names.
They said some the county executive members’ nominees are incompetent and are unfit to hold offices
hence urged Nyaribo to consider new appointees over the current nominees who the members vowed to
“We can differentiate between those areas where some leaders have political interests and those areas
where some leaders cannot reach the executive to get something for their areas. This is very clear because
the areas which are not developed can be seen. There is a lot of imbalance in that list that was proposed
by the governor since some of the nominees were previously in the government and failed to deliver,”
said Ekerenyo Ward MCA Thaddeus Nyabaro.
The vetting comes amid a misunderstanding after the employment and labour relations court in Kericho

immediately he took over.
Two of the ten nominees have already been vetted including Stephen Onwong’a a seasoned administrator

The former CECs Douglas Bosire (Health), John Omanwa (Finance) Omwanza Muga (Public Works) and
Bernard Osumo (Public Service Management) dramatically stormed the governor’s office armed with
court orders and went straight to their offices and maintained they will be in office until their tenure ends
in August 2022.
Another MCA insisted that Nyaribo will have to go back to the drawing board to get them a new nominee
for the position of the deputy governor as the current nominee is from the same clan with the current West
Mugirango MP Vincent Kemosi terming it as inequality for some regions in the county.
