George Natembeya's Successor Advised to be Ready as Details Reveal the Tough Task That Awaits him

It has emerged that a lot of work awaits Mohamed Maalim, successor to former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya as he takes office this week.

Mr Natembeya resigned last Wednesday so that he can officially prepare to run for Trans Nzoia County governorship in the August 9 general election.

Mr Maalim was the Makueni County Commissioner. Among the issues he will address as he begins his role as Rift Valley Regional Commissioner is to maintain stability during the election period when tough campaigns will be expected in the region that has 14 counties.

His promotion has been received with mixed feelings by leaders, residents and security experts. According to Mr Jesse Karanja, a resident of Nakuru, Mr Maalim will have to be like Mr Natembeya.

"This area is vast from Turkana to Kajiado and the new Regional commissioner must be prepared to address the many security challenges in this area. Above all, he will have to lead all 14 county commissioners to maintain peace and stability," he said.
