Deputy Governor Amos Nyaribo is set to be sworn in as Nyamira governor to succeed John Nyagarama.

The swearing-in, according to the Assumption of Office Committee, will take place at around 11 am at Nyamira Primary School.

Nyaribo will take the oath of office the same place where he and Nyagarama were sworn into office after winning the 2017 General Election.

The ceremony will be attended by all elected leaders from Nyamira including MPs Joash Nyamoko (North Mugirango), Ben Momanyi (Borabu), Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba) and Vincent Kemosi (West Mugirango), Senator Okong'o Mogeni, Woman Rep Jerusha Momanyi and other leaders from Gusii region.

Tough Person

Nyaribo is known for his intolerance on the impropriety of county resources and will never hesitate to take action against implicated officers.

When Nyagarama was undergoing treatment in the United States of America in 2018, Nyaribo fired five payroll officers over alleged enrolment of ghost workers into the county payroll.

He differed with Nyagarama over a number of issues ranging from corruption to appointment of officials of the county.

The deputy governor differed with Nyagarama over issues such as illegal recruitment of county staff, payroll cleansing, lagged development and impropriety among county officials.
