Deputy Governor Kiambu county James Nyoro has accused his boss, Ferdinand Waititu of high handedness and has sworn not resign.

“I am not going anywhere. I was not appointed by the governor, I was not appointed by the assembly, I was appointed by the people of Kiambu who gave me the mandate to go on until 2022,” the DG said.

Nyoro who was a food security adviser at the Office of the President says that the governor has been threatening to fire all county officials seen associating with him.

“The county executive committee members are a frustrated lot. It is only that they cannot talk but they are working under fear. They are told if I see you in Nyoro’s office, you will find your official vehicle without wheels and then I sack you,” he said.

The DG further accused Baba Yao of running the county alone and hardly ever consults with the county executives or himself.

Apparently, he says, the former Kabete MP summons individuals to his office to issue directives, hence controversy.

“All the controversial issues that we’re having today, including the Alcoholic Bill… the implementation of it… I want to be told what cabinet memo was done in order to be implemented,” said Nyoro.
