Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has asked newly appointed County executives to sign undated resignation letters.
Governor Sang asked the CECs to sign the letters so that it would be easy to dismiss them in case of such a situation.
The CECs include Alfred Lagat (Finance), Elly Kurgat (Sports), Ruth Koech (Health), Hillary Koech (Transport), Jacob Tanui (Lands), Valentine Chumo (Tourism), Benard Lagat (Trade), Stanley Baliach (Education) and Wilson Kibor (Agriculture).
He asked the officials and other county staff to report to work on time and effectively serve residents, failure to which he will be forced to crack the whip.
“This is proof that I will not tolerate anything that will jeopardise my transformation agenda since I am the one who will be held to account by the electorate. You have to perform,” Governor Sang stated.
“There is no way I am going to tolerate late coming yet I am always in the office by 7am. This is a new dawn and all county employees must switch to a new working mode or they will face the music,” he added.
In September, Sang fired the entire former Cabinet appointed by his predecessor, former Governor Cleopas Lagat.
He appointed 10 new executives and forwarded their names to the County Assembly for vetting and approval.
Apart from Sang, a number of governors have fired CECs who worked under previous county bosses.
