The long anticipated swearing-in of Kisumu County Executives has finally taken place three months after Governor Professor Nyong’o assumption of office. Given that three hundred and sixty professionals drawn from various fields of expertise applied for consideration as county executive committee member (CEC),only ten were to be selected in a competitive selection criterion.

Upon nomination by the Governor, the candidates were put through an extensive vetting exercise by the county assembly and certainly proved to be up to the task set out for them. Without a doubt it was a tedious exercise to come up with the Professor’s dream team that will steer the county into unprecedented heights to deliver the Kisumu dream.

Excitement was in the air as the chosen CECs took oath of office one after the other at the County’s Town Hall in an event presided over by Mr. Julius Ng’arng’ar,Chief Magistrate in the presence of Governor Prof. Nyong’o,his deputy Dr. Matthews Owili,County Assembly speaker, Mr. Onyango Oloo, County Secretary,Dr. Olang’o Onudi,Chief of staff,Mr. Ouya Kalausi,county officials,family members and residents of the great county of Kisumu.

Hon. Onyango Oloo,challenged the CECs to rise to the occasion and execute their duties as spelt out in the constitution without giving any excuses as they are expected to give residents of the county quality services,he also pledged to work in collaboration with the team at all times. On the other hand,Dr. Owili congratulated them on their appointment stating that it was no mean fete to get where they are and he expects them to be lieutenants for the county to fly with eagles.

Speaking at the event,the governor congratulated the team on their appointment;he lauded the assembly for their commitment to hiring the best team. However,he challenged the newly appointed members to maintain professionalism throughout their tenure.
