It is shocking that if you have no relatives in the Trans Nzoia county assembly one cannot be employed due to nepotism. This has left qualified officers who can deliver with no chance to get employment. This has led Ethics and Anti-Corruption
Commission to freeze some individual accounts. Weekly Citizen managed to access the list of shame from the health department whereby the county government officers have employed their relatives locking out other qualified persons in the sector. County assembly finance officer Moses Lupao has employed his sister Stella Pepela, county executive committee in charge of public service management Susan Murumba has employed her daughter Murumba Dolphin as nutrition and dietetics technicians and Evelyn Nanyama is the daughter to the county assembly protocol officer.
County public service board secretary, one Soita, used her position to influence the employment of his daughter Rael Naliaka as a nurse. The chief officer in charge of environment John Meng’wa, who is aspiring for Saboti parliamentary seat come 2022, pushed for his brother Javan Kimtai Meng’wa while county secretary Wakofula Sifuna has employed his daughter Mary Nasimiyu in the position of physiotherapist. Daisy Silako holds the position of management officer on nepotism grounds. The chief officer in charge of livestock Shadrack Kimtai employed his brother Kosgei Shadrack as a clinical officer same to Governor Patrick Khaemba’s wife Lydia Khaemba who influenced the employment of her brother Dickson Kirwa in the same position. Imelda Agoi human resource manager in charge of county public service board employed her sisters Lillian Kasandi, Edith Khavere and her cousin Amos Barasa in the position of orthopedic technologist while Stephen Obare is the son to the Trans Nzoia county assembly CEO both employed in the same position of health administrative officers.

Trans Nzoia deputy governor Stanely Tarus is in the same mix where he pushed for her daughter Cynthia Kepkosgei to the position of health administrative officer. Chereng’ani subcounty administrator Dorothy Musikoyo has not been left behind in the nepotism where her sister Saenyi Eugene holds the position of medical officer.
