Dr Nicholas Atudonyang left the country shortly after being sworn in to office after the August elections. He apparently works as a neurosurgeon in Texas.

On Saturday student leaders; Dennis Ruto (University of Nairobi), Hillary Chesoit (JKUAT) and Allan Rotich Multi media University accused him of drawing a salary for work not done.

“Our deputy governor has not been in the country since elections. Once he was inaugurated and assumed office he left for the US to work there as a medical doctor. He has not been serving the people of West Pokot,” Ruto said.
