CEO quits job to become Governor Nyongo's advisor

Intrigues of the political world

Governors Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Anyang Nyong’o (Kisumu) , Sospeter Ojaamong (Busia), John Nyagarama (Nyamira), Cyprian Awiti (Homa Bay) and Wilbur Ottichilo (Vihiga) during a past press conference in Kisumu.

Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) CEO Abala Wanga on Tuesday announced his resignation from the bloc citing that his work was done.

Mr Wanga who was formerly an advisor to Kisumu Governor Anyang' Nyong'o announced that he would be returning to that position following his resignation.

"After extensive consultation with Governor Nyong’o and the LREB Chairperson Wycliffe Oparanya, I decide to resign and go back to my initial position within the county after putting up structures in place for the bloc," he stated.

Governor Oparanya on the LREB

Insiders conveyed that Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who is also LREB chairman played a role in pushing Abala to resign.

According to the sources, Governor Oparanya brought up Abala's involvement in a theft case while he worked at Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) in Kiambu.

There had been confusion over Governor Oparanya's tenure at the LREB after he seemed to imply that he was about to resign. He, however, clarified that he did not intend to quit the bloc.

"I have noted widespread distortion in a section of the press on the statement I made last week on my leadership at the Lake Region Economic Bloc. Some said I have quit as the chairman. My response is, I’m going nowhere," Governor Oparanya clarified.
