Kitui Governor Dr Julius Malombe Speaking Wednesday outside his administration block after witnessing the swearing in of his 10 CECMs and 22 COs said they had obtained a conservatory court order restraining him from appointing their replacement. He said for his respect for the rule of law he had thus put on hold the appointment.

Four individuals nominated by Governor Malombe for positions of chief officers and approved by Kitui Assembly will have to wait a little longer before assuming office.

The four are Kamunda John, Jonathan Nzau, Bretta Mwangangi, Nason Kilonzo.

Governor Malombe said that Kitui people will not immediately enjoy the services of the four officers until the court case is concluded. The governor, however, said he was optimistic that the case at the Labour Relations court in Nairobi would be thrown out and sooner than later the suspended appointment of his four chief officers will be effected.

Malombe also Unveiled that the “Zakayo Four” doesn’t show up to court case hearing and anytime the case with be thrown out.
