Uasin Gishu County Assembly passed a vote of no confidence against Public Service Management CEC Margaret Jepchumba Chepkwony on Thursday,after an acrimonious debate which lasted for more than six hours, late into the night.

The heated debate on wether or not CE Margaret Chepkwony should be dismissed for violation of the Public Employment Act and abuse of office culminated into a vote by division which was passed with a wide margin in which 23 MCAs supported her dismissal against 19.

The vote now means it is upto the Governor to decide whether to dismiss Margaret Chepkwony or let her stay in office against the assemblys’ wish.

In a stormy debate, majority members of the assembly supported the motion,urging the governor to dismiss the County Minister because she had disregarded the laws in single sourcing National Youth Service (NYS) services and illegal recruitment of deputy sub-county administrators among other accusations.

“We should follow the stipulated laws in whatever we undertake in this county. I want to thank the honourable members who have supported this motion because they have clearly said no to impunity,” said Kapsuswa/Kuinet Ward rep Rebecca Chepchirchir Magut who moved the motion to censure Chepkwony and demanded her immediate dismissal.

Chairman Public Service Board Joseph Tanui and CEC Finance and Economic Planning Shadrack Sambai are also facing a censure motion. The censure motion against Governor Jackson Mandago’s cabinet is being read by political observers as a vote of no confidence on his administration.

  1. Something is wrong with ug county…..instead of people discussing dvlpmnt n how to make ug a better place they are busy discussing things that are based on malice n personal interested!MCA’s wafanye maendeleo kwa maward yao waachane na panga’nga.

  2. I think MCAs are misguided, they should have addressed it in a more sober and professional way. Uasi Ngishu needs development agendas not personalised motions.

    Please address the matter soberly.

  3. I have worked with Margaret and I know her as a very professional and procedural person, I am surprised with this accusations. she must have refused to boot lick.

  4. NO good deed goes unpunished. Margaret is paying the price for sealing the loop holes which were being exploited by some connected people to siphon money from the county.
    Why is she accused of misconduct when she hired NYS to collect revenue which has shown an increase from 2M to 8M per month? Someone is unhappy? the wallet is lean. The people of UG should stand against this kind of injustice. MCAs should be working to bring development to the people and not working to bring down the very institutions that we are building to facilitate development.
