BY CORREPONDENT,SIAYA,4TH OCT 2017-The county government of Siaya has suffered a major setback after the Assembly rejected the list of nominees for County Executive Committee positions.
The county’s appointment and vetting committee rejected the list that was presented to the Assembly for approval.
The report presented in the floor for debate by Mr Sylvester Madialo asked Governor Cornel Rasanga to appoint new nominees, who will take up the cabinet slots or place them in dockets that suit them.
The motion which elicited heated debate and moved by Mr Madialo said the governor disregarded the Sec 35(1) of County Government Act, which called for affirmative action and regional balance.
Mr Madialo stated that the committee also found that the list did not cater for the youth and interest groups. He termed the nominations null and void.
