Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has treated his outgoing CECs to a dinner days before he unveils his new Cabinet.

The governor praised the outgoing county ministers and urged them to be proud of their achievements.

“The fact that you were the first architects of sound structures and policies formulated to steer our county to greater heights of development must make you always proud of yourselves,” he told the team.

Lean team

The dinner, held at a Mumias hotel on Friday night, could have been the ‘last supper’ for several CECs rumoured to have been left out of the new line-up.

Mr Oparanya is expected to name his new CECs on Wednesday. Delicate regional balancing act compelled the governor to delay the unveiling of his new Cabinet.

He has pledged to select an all-inclusive, lean and efficient team. Meanwhile, a row is brewing between the MCAs and the county executive after Oparanya abolished the Sh180 million ward development and bursary funds.

The MCAs are expected to vet the new Cabinet.
