Nyagarama's style wanting, says Deputy Governor Nyaribo

Nyamira Deputy Governor Amos Nyaribo has accused his boss of poor governance, sparking another round of conflict between the two.
Mr Nyaribo claimed that Governor John Nyagarama was sidelining him in the management of county affairs.
Nyaribo has complained on more than four occasions about what he calls "Nyagarama's one-man-show style of governance", which he says is unconventional and undermining to those serving under him.
Late last year, the deputy fell out with his senior when four members of the Executive and two chief officers were given a clean bill of health to return to office following an array of accusations ranging from incompetence to graft and abuse of office.
Mr Nyagarama allowed the six to return to work after a select committee formed by the assembly to probe them found the officers innocent. The six were re-assigned to various departments where they have been serving for nearly one year.
Nyaribo was on record in April when he took the governor on at a public event, accusing him of not doing enough to address the plights of the village where he (Nyaribo) comes from.
The deputy governor was at it again Wednesday, complaining about the recent reshuffle that Nyagarama effected without consulting him.
"All that I have read and heard through the media are total rumours to me because I have not received any official communication to that effect. I am not taking it lightly because I also have a part to play in decision making in county affairs," said Nyaribo.
