Finance CEC Reinstated, Chief Officers Shuffled after the Sh1.5 Billion Pending Bill Saga

Long-serving finance chief officer was moved to water and irrigation in new changes.

Governor Joseph Ole Lenku on Thursday made changes in his administration by moving three chief officers to serve in other dockets.

A long-serving finance and economic planning chief officer, Morris Kaaka, has been moved to water and irrigation docket.

Kaaka was first appointed by former governor David Nkedianye to serve in that position that has been lately under scrutiny after the county incurred pending bills amounting to Sh1.5 billion.

Lenku had on Sunday, as he left the country, admitted there were major “disturbing” issues in the finance department.

He said this after a report, of a probe committee he had earlier appointed to investigate the depth of pending bills, came out with disturbing revelations of “bribery and missing files” for clients’ payments.

Kaaka has been replaced by Sankaire Tima, while lands, physical planning, and urban development has been taken by Douglas Konana.

The governor, at the same time, reinstated finance, economic planning CEC, Alais Kisota, who he suspended on June 4, over operations of his department that led to an accumulation of unpaid bills worth Sh1.5 billion.

The changes are to take effect immediately.
