Interior CS Kindiki makes changes among County Commissioners
Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has made changes to the leadership of County Commissioners in all 47 Counties.
The changes include the transfer of 20 County Commissioners, the promotion of 12 deputy commissioners, and the recall of four to the Ministry. 15 Commissioners were not affected by the changes.
According to Kindiki, the changes are aimed at enhancing service delivery in the counties. “We are making these changes to improve the performance of the County Commissioners and to ensure that they deliver on their mandate to the people of Kenya,” he said.
The new postings have seen Josephine Ouko moved from Kisumu to Busia, Joshua Nkanatha transferred from Kiambu to Embu, and Abdirisack Jaldesac from Baringo to Mombasa. Gideon Oyagi will now be posted in Trans-Nzoia from Kwale, while Mohammed Barre moves to Nyandarua from Nyeri.
Among those recalled to the Ministry are Herman Shambi from Nandi, Mathias Rioba from Trans-Nzoia, Michael Ivuto from Kirinyaga, and Stephen Kihara from Embu.
The changes also saw eight deputy county commissioners transferred to new stations. The Cabinet Secretary has urged the new appointees to work closely with the governors and other county leaders to ensure that they deliver on their mandate.
“These changes are not meant to punish anyone, but rather to ensure that we have the best people in the right positions to serve the people of Kenya,” Kindiki said.
The County Commissioners are responsible for coordinating government activities and delivering services at the county level. They work closely with other government officials and stakeholders to ensure that the needs of the people are met.
The changes are expected to take effect immediately.
