Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso has asked residents not to call her ‘excellency’ in the latest bid to endear herself to locals and Kenyans at large.

Dr Laboso, who is among the first three female governors in the country, on Wednesday said her main concern was quality of service and not the big title.

She appeared to go against the preference of most of her colleagues who feel direct reference without ‘your excellency’ is disrespectful .


“I am not interested in designated (special) seats being ferried from one function to another. I will be sitting on any seat being used by the other members of the community,” she said.

She spoke during a clean-up exercise of Bomet Green Stadium, a campaign meant to rid the town of plastic bags and other waste.
