A top county official is under fire for using foul language on social media while responding to critics of his boss.
Over the weekend the man was in eye of the storm after he called for public flogging of those opposed to the Governor.
“We have reached a level where people should be caned so that respect each other,” the CEC posted on Facebook while responding to a critic.
As expected screenshots of his comment went viral, with many people questioning how power has gotten to the head of the hitherto humble executive.
It will be interesting to see if the appointing authority will crack the whip on the county minister for his unguarded outburst.
