By James Munyeki | August 27th 2020
Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia (pictured) is at it again.
He again made changes to his county Executive Committee at midnight.
In what appears to be a ‘tradition’ of some sort, Mr. Kimemia made the changes but did not fire any members.
Last year, he made midnight changes that saw four of his executives sacked causing uproar among residents.
However, on the night of August 27, no member of his executive committee was fired.
Finance and Planning Committee Executive member Mary Mugwanja was moved to the Roads and Public works docket replacing Ndungu Wangenye.
Mr Wangenye, a former Laikipia Kuppet Executive Secretary has been moved to the Education docket.
