Former Siaya Finance Executive Cleophas Ombogo has been re-appointed to the post.
Ombogo, who served between 2013 and 2017, made his way back to the docket after Governor Cornel Rasanga reappointed him.
He was sworn in yesterday. The politician took over from Richard Mungla who was moved to head the Trade and Enterprise Department.
Mungla has been holding the position of Finance executive since 2019.
Ombogo failed to make it to the list of those who would serve in Rasanga’s Cabinet in his second term after his contract expired in 2017.
The governor appointed Joseph Warega after re-election, but Warega resigned in March, last year citing frustrations from the county government.
Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony at the county headquarters, Ombogo called for teamwork and team spirit to enable the department to deliver its mandate.
Also sworn in during the ceremony was Rosenell Anyango. She is the new Education Executive and replaces Mary Omondi who was sacked two months ago.
The governor further asked the newly sworn-in executives to ensure the major pillars of public service, including a clear vision for the department, quality performance contracting, personal integrity and quality service delivery to Siaya residents guided them at all times.
Speaker George Okode who attended the ceremony reminded the county ministers that it was their duty to answer to audit queries.
Okode warned the executives from being absent when required to provide necessary documents to answer to audit queries by relevant committees in the County Assembly.
