Five CECs retained their posts, they include Nicholas Koriko (Finance, Economic Planning and Service Delivery), Aguko Juma (Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food Security), Prof Richard Muga (Health Services), Beatrice Asyago (Education and ICT) and Dickson Nyawinda (Water, Environment and Natural Resources).

The Governor has also nominated Philemon Dony Opar from Karachuonyo Constituency to head Roads, Transport and Infrastructure Department awaiting to be vetted by MCAs.

Speaking after initiating the charges Governor Awiti says that he has realized that there are a lot of weaknesses in his administration that bar his efforts of delivering services to the county residents.
