A section of Uasin Gishu County Assembly members have stirred fresh controversy in the County by calling on the County Governor Jackson Mandago to shun key allies from his inner circle of advisers, including his Trade Minister Philip Melly.
A few days before the tabling of County Executives Vetting report,the MCA’s who sought anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter and for fear of victimisation are now calling for stern action against the Trade County Executive whom they claim is misleading the Governor.
Speaking to Uasin Gishu Bloggers on phone,the MCA’s singled out Philip Melly as being behind wrong decisions that have made the Governor look bad. They claimed Melly was using his close links with Governor Mandago to influence making of some decisions that threaten the perfomance of the County Government.
“Melly has been misleading Governor Mandago on a number of occasions while he himself was rejected by the electorate and it’s time he is told plainly that he has no credibility to advise the County Leadership,”added the MCA’s.
