Trouble in Paradise as UDA Governor and Deputy Don't See Eye to Eye With Deputy Days After Swearing

With barely a month after being sworn in, most governors who chose their deputies out of convenience and political mathematics are having a difficult time. They do not see eye to eye with solid 5 years before them. Kericho county duo are showing signs of not ending the marriage of convenience well.

Governor Erick Mutai and his deputy Eng. Fred Kirui fell out weeks after being sworn in and their differences continue to show out publicly. During the swearing of county MCAs, the deputy governor who dropped out of the race to deputize the people’s governor was locked out of assembly.

It is alleged that the agreement before they joined forces was to share the government equally. But when the time of choosing the speaker and the deputy, the DG felt shortchanged. His trial to convince MCAs to vote in his candidate was unfruitful. 

The deputy was not involved in the choosing of county CECs, while the county leadership flagged the candidates, the deputy was conspicuously missing.

On Friday afternoon, members of the press waited on the DG after promising to issue a statement but did not materialize.
