Bomet Governor names Deputy Governor

Just in

Bomet County Deputy Governor Hillary Barchok

Bomet Governor Hilary Barchok has nominated County Assembly Speaker David Rotich to succeed him as the county's deputy governor.

Barchok served as the Bomet DG from August 2017 to August this year when he assumed the Governor's position following the death of Joyce Laboso.

He promised to continue with the team Governor Laboso had worked with - even retaining the entire Cabinet.

The Bomet County Assembly will vote for a new speaker if it confirms Rotich as the new Deputy Governor.

Nairobi now becomes the only county that does not have a Deputy Governor as the seat has remained vacant since January 2018 when Polycarp Igathe resigned from the position - citing lack of trust between him and Governor Mike Sonko.
