Dr. Joyce Laboso’s inauguration ceremony finalised
The incoming Bomet Governor Dr. Joyce Laboso has declared that her government will be inclusive of all communities living in the region.
She noted that the election was over and now is the time to get down to service delivery to the people.
She promised that her administration will be all inclusive saying she will not victimize any public servant since their role was service provision and not politics.
Laboso appealed to her supporters and those of the outgoing governor Mr. Isaac Ruto to forget their political differences noting that Bomet was one County for all of them.
Accompanying his successor, Mr Ruto said leaders come and go and cautioned the locals against indulgence in any form of violence.
The County transition committee has announced that arrangements for inauguration ceremony of the new governor had been finalised.
Speaking to the press in Bomet town Monday the chairman of the transition team Mr. Jonathan Soi said his committee was currently working on the final touches of the programme to be conducted at the Bomet green Stadium Tuesday.
Soi said that many local and international dignitaries had confirmed attendance of the ceremony also expected to be graced by President Kenyatta and his Deputy Mr. William Ruto.
He said the incoming and the outgoing governors had a fruitful meeting with the transition team at the County headquarters on Sunday and promised to make the day memorable.
During the Sunday meeting, Mr Ruto confirmed attending the occasion adding that he was willing to hand over instruments of power personally. The Sunday meeting was an inauguration rehearsal that brought together the two bitter rivals during the just ended elections.
He said the day will be historic and all Bomet County staff were expected to attend and at the same time appealed to Bomet residents to heartedly welcome all the dignitaries.
Ruto at the same time dispelled rumours doing rounds in the region that he had fallen sick in the wake of losing the re-election in the August 8, general election.
