The six took their oath of office on Wednesday promising to work diligently.

“I am proud to say that the six board members that have been sworn into office represent the six sub-ethnic communities of the Gusii community and that the two thirds gender rule in public appointment has been observed,” he said.

The governor said that fresh job evaluations for all cadres in the county government would be conducted early next year to ensure all departments were doing their work as expected and which ones needed to be scrapped or merged to ensure efficiency.

He said that although the board was independent he would not hesitate to invoke his powers if its members failed to measure up to their oath of office or worked below expectations.
