In a letter submitted to the governor, Atudonyany who was serving both as the Deputy Governor and the County Health Executive stepped down from the health docket.

Lonyangapuo confirmed that he had received the resignation and announced several changes in his administration in a bid to ensure better service delivery to the public.

The governor came under fire after claims emerged that his deputy has been receiving a county salary yet he has a job in the U.S.

In his defense, the governor dismissed the claims, disclosing that he sent his deputy to the United States for medical equipment.

“The problem at Kapenguria Hospital is not lack of doctors but medical equipment because of high prices. We have no machines for cancer screening. We need Ksh.3billion for the equipment and the county gets 5.5 billion from the national government will not get money to buy all those equipment,” He said.
