Kisumu Governor Anyang' Nyong'o on Friday appointed himself as the acting Health Minister for his county.

In a statement shared by County Secretary Godfrey Kigochi, the Governor also announced reshuffles in his cabinet.

"In the meantime, the Department of Health and Sanitation will be managed by the Governor himself before the appointment of a substantive CECM," the notice read in part.

Governor Nyong'o nominated Dr Joyce Atieno Osogo to take over Roads, Public Works and Transport ministry while Prof. Judith Migunda Attyang' takes over Business, Co-operatives and Marketing.

Governor bans travellers from other counties

In an unrelated development, Murang'a Governor Mwangi wa Iria banned travellers from other counties from entering the Central Kenya county.

He stated that the move is aimed at reducing the risk of importing the virus into his county.

"This coronavirus is following movement of people, we do not want you to travel and infect people or travel and bring the disease here, we have to be careful.

"I know this will be unpopular but I do not want visitors in Murang’a form other counties, Murang’a people should also stay in Murang’a, experts say this virus is spread by people moving from one place to the other," he stated.
