Two newly appointed Kericho County Executive Committee Members (CECM) and one member of the Kericho Municipal Board have taken the oath of office in the presence of the Kericho County Governor Dr. Eric Mutai.

John Kipruto Malel is now the CECM in charge of Public Service Management while Jackson Rop has been sworn in as the CECM for Trade, Industrialization, Tourism, Wildlife, and Cooperative Management.

In the colourful ceremony presided over by the Kericho Chief Magistrate Charles Ombulutsa at the County Government premises, Mrs. Mercy Mutai was also sworn in as a Kericho Municipal Board Member.

Kericho Governor congratulated the new appointees and challenged them to use their experience and skills in bettering service delivery to the residents of the County.

Dr. Mutai observed that the new team came in when his administration had lined up various projects that needed to be implemented as soon as possible for the benefit of the residents.

“The Kipkelion East Factory for maize is ongoing, we are also working on a dairy processor at Belgut in partnership with the national government. We are equally working on the Roret Pineapple project also have a plan to build 15 modern markets. We need to take Kericho county to the next level through trade investments and innovations and that is why we need to make our Jua kali industry vibrant for them to prosper,” said Dr. Mutai

The Kericho Chief Magistrate who presided over the swearing-in ceremony disclosed that land has already been set aside for the construction of new law courts in Kericho after the existing building was condemned due to structural defects.

“We are also making plans to establish a permanent court in Kipkelion, Soin-Sigowet, and Kapkatet. Also in the pipeline, we will establish a County Court just within the town where the small claims court will also be,” he added

Also present at the function was the Speaker of the County Assembly of Kericho Dr. Patrick Mutai, and Members of the County Assembly of Kericho.
