Kakamega County governor-elect and deputy governor-elect Fernandes Barasa and Ayub Savula, respectively, are expected to take the oath of office at Bukhungu Stadium tomorrow, Thursday, September 15th, 2022.
A similar occasion will be conducted in Mombasa, which, together with Kakamega, was affected by the decision of the IEBC to call off gubernatorial elections in the two counties from August 9th to August 29th.
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has sent representatives to witness the signing of integrity oaths by the governors.
“This is a requirement under Section 40 of the Leadership and Integrity Act, 2012, which signifies a commitment and pledge to the public that the State Officer will, during their tenure, uphold integrity, prevent corruption, and not betray the public trust,” the EACC said.
High Court judges have also been dispatched by the judiciary to preside over the ceremony that’ll witness the first change of guard since Wycliffe Oparanya took over in 2013.
The rest of the 45 governors and their deputies took their oaths on August 25th and are now scheduled for a retreat in Mombasa where they will also elect the Chairman of the Council of Governors.
About 5,000 guests are expected in the ceremony to kick off at 10.00 am.
