None of the outgoing CECs agreed to speak on record despite acknowledging they were leaving office at the end of their contracts. “It is true the contracts they had came to an end on November 12,” said Job Tumbo, the governor’s chief of staff when confirming the cabinet’s departure. Tumbo denied that the departure of the entire cabinet will affect operations of the devolved government. “It is a normal thing for contracts to come to an end and there is nothing abnormal. Accordingly there is no crisis,” Tumbo who is also acting County Secretary said adding that the outgoing CECs are "in the process of clearing."

One CEC who asked not to be named confirmed that he was a little concerned about his future although he was aware that his employment would end in two years when he signed in November 2017. “We were all aware that we had two year contracts. Some of us feel a little down because the two years have moved so fast,” he said. Meanwhile the Mombasa county assembly will vet Dennis Lewa who has been nominated for the vacant post of County Secretary on Thursday, according to notice by the assembly’s appointments committee in yesterday’s newspapers. Francis Thoya held that post until early this year at the expiry of his contract. Mr Tumbo has been acting since.
