All set for swearing in of Kisumu county governor

21 March 2013, 16:48 Oduor Omondi

Preparations for the swearing in of Kisumu county governor Jack Ranguma are complete.

The ceremony, projected to cost KES 2M, will be held at the Jomo Kenyatta Sports Ground on March, 27.  

According to Kisumu County’s interim secretary Humphrey Okuku Wakito, the swearing in ceremony will commence at 8.00am and will be over by noon.  

The transitional committee is working round the clock to refurbish Ranguma’s offices which will be located at the Nyanza Provincial Headquarters.

Okuku also divulged that members of Kisumu County Assembly will be sworn in on Friday March 22.

Speaker seat 'not for a person who can make good English sentences'

The assembly’s first business will be to elect its speaker.

Currently, lobbying has gone a notch higher as candidates burn the midnight oil trying to woo the 41 members of the county Assembly.

So far, 16 candidates have declared interest in the seat with majority of them being lawyers.

According to Kisumu Church leaders, the speaker must be non partisan and sober minded.

"The seat is not for a person who can make good English sentences, but an individual who is in touch with the needs of the people of Kisumu and cannot be overshadowed by political interests,” said Nyanza Council of Church leaders Chairman Bishop Washington Ogonyo Ngede.
