Kenyans voting during elections
SUMMARY
  • A Governor from Western Kenya has left some residents of the county regretting why they voted out his predecessor
  • First he made his office a no-go-zone and instead chose to meet people at the grassroots

The metamorphosis of a first time Governor from Western Kenya months after he got the plum post has left some residents of the county regretting why they voted out his predecessor. After he was sworn into to office, the new county boss resorted to radical austerity measures.

First he made his office a no-go-zone and instead chose to meet people at the grassroots. This has starved some mandarins around his office who used to cash in on the delegations by inflating figures.

The Governor also does not give out hand-outs during his meet the people tours, a fact that has not gone down well with residents who had been accustomed to the largesse of the previous office holder.
