Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has succumbed to pressure sacking three county executives who had been accused of misappropriating money and engaging in corrupt practices.
Pressure has been piling on the county boss to kick out the trio, Valentine Chumo (Education), Hillary Koech (Transport and Infrastructure) and Stanley Baliach (Lands).
They had earlier been suspended after a report by the county assembly demanded that they step aside following an investigation into how county funds had been used in various projects.
The governor on Tuesday subsequently nominated Mr Drice Rono for the Transport docket, Mr Philemon Bureti (Lands) and Ms Grace Sugut (Education). They would have to be vetted by the assembly before they are formally appointed to the positions.
“I made a pledge to ensure accountability, efficiency and improved service delivery to the people of Nandi County. To achieve this, there is a need to continuously re-examine and assess performance output by county officers and departments,” said the governor.
