A chief officer of a county government in Rift Valley has made the life of a female employee a nightmare after she turned down his sexual advances.

The recently hired official, even instigated a transfer of the woman to a rural sub-county, a decision that was overturned after a more senior officer intervened.

He has made the issue so personal that he constantly harasses the female employee, hurling insults at her even during meetings. 

He has resorted in frustrating the woman by refusing to assign her duties, reducing her to an office assistant and his errant girl.

All hell broke loose sometime last week when the woman declined his invite for dinner, which made the man yell and shout at her at a staff meeting.

The officer has vowed in the presence of other members of staff to teach the employee a lesson.

Staff are now appealing to the county leadership to intervene lest the lady does something tragic.
