CECs are appointees of a governor and Nyaribo’s move didn’t come as a surprise as it’s within his rights to keep Nyagarama’s team or hire his own.

The new county boss, who served under Nyagarama as Deputy Governor for seven years, is expected to announce the appointment of a Deputy Governor within a period of 14 days from the day he assumed office.
