Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho on Thursday okayed several transfers of administrators, including former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya, who will serve his notice period at the ministry.
Mr. Natembeya exited on Wednesday afternoon to pursue his political interests after a 25-year career in public service. He will be running for the Trans Nzoia governor’s seat.
Following his exit as the Rift Valley Regional Commissioner, his Makueni County counterpart Mohamed Ahmed Maalim will now succeed him under the same capacity.
The changes have also affected the ex-Machakos Commissioner Ms. Esther Wamuyu Maina who was moved to Central Kenya as regional commissioner from her current post in Western Kenya. Isaiah Aregai Nkoru will replace her in the Western region as Evans Mongáre Achoki heads to Eastern.
The Central region’s Wilfred Agage Nyangwanga was also moved to the ministry’s headquarters in Nairobi. Mr. William Kang’ethe Thuku is the new Nairobi regional commissioner, a position that had been held by James Kyalo Kianda, who was moved to North Eastern region.
Mr Nicodemus Ndalana, who served in the Eastern region, has been moved to the ministry headquarters. Meanwhile, Mr Lucas Katee Mwanza, a senior deputy secretary at the ministry headquarters, becomes the new Mombasa County commissioner. He replaces Mr Gilbert Kitiyo Benjamin, who was moved to Makueni.
Ms. Rhoda Nyaboke Onyancha moves from Taita Taveta to Machakos County, replaced by Nyeri’s Loyford Ephantus Kibaara. Mr. John Otieno Ondego moves from Machakos to Kakamega, where he succeeds Ms. Pauline Anyango Dola, who will now serve as personal assistant to the Nyanza regional commissioner.
Mr. Abdulla Galgallo Hiddi moves from Embu to Nyeri and will be replaced by Mr. Eddyson Haro Nyale, previously stationed at the ministry headquarters.
Mr. Abdirisack Jaldesa has been transferred from Samburu County to Baringo County while Mr. Henry Orawo Wafula becomes the new Samburu County commissioner.
Vihiga County’s Jesse Ochillo Oyugi was moved to the ministry headquarters and replaced with Mr. John Odhiambo Otieno. Mr. John Kipngétich Korir goes to Elgeyo Marakwet from Busia, as Isaac Wanyonyi Masinde, a senior deputy secretary at the ministry, proceeding to Narok County.
The transfers will take effect immediately. A recent lot of transfers approved last week saw Mr. Jacob Macharia Mwaura, the deputy county commissioner (DCC) for Mathare, moved to Embakasi, and replaced by Kahuro’s Jack Obuo.
Kiambu DCC Fredrick Martin Muli was also moved to Kahuro and Embakasi’s Kenneth Gitinga Muriungi taken to Nairobi County as the personal assistant to the regional commissioner.
