  • Residents of Nyamira County breached security and stole food meant for VIPs at the home of newly sworn-in Deputy Governor James Gesami.

    The hungry lot reportedly sneaked in through the fence as the catering team that was hired for the party was preparing to serve guests food.

    According to the Standard, the gatecrashers overpowered the outside catering team and took matters into their own hands as they scrambled for the food that was in big hotpots.

    The scramble for food turned chaotic as the food could not satisfy the rowdy bunch. Some started eating from the large hotpots and cooking pots that had been used to store the food.

    After eating to their satisfaction, the group left the scene with utensils scattered around the home. 

    Dr James Gesami was sworn in on August 17, 2021, after a petition challenging his nomination and appointment was dismissed by the Nyamira High Court.

    His nomination to the DG office was met with a lot of resistance in the county, however, the County Assembly vote to approve his nomination putting an end to the tussle.

    Gesami's nomination was rejected in March 2021 after the Appointments Committee chaired by Speaker Teya asserted the DG lacked clearance from the police and Credit Reference Bureau.

    It was claimed that the nominee had questionable documents including the CRB Clearance Certificate and Certificate of good conduct.

    Some of the documents included clearance certificates from the Higher Education Loans Board, the National Police Service, and the Credit Reference Bureau.

    Nyamaiya MCA Raban Masira, who was a supporter, asked the speaker why the committee declined the documents when he presented them on Monday, January 18.

    His second vetting was also disrupted after a petitioner moved to court to block the nomination in May 2021.
