Trans Nzoia leaders led by Senator Michael Mbito have faulted Governor Patrick Khaemba’s leadership in the County. Senator Mbito has said the Trans Nzoia Governor has become lazy in discharging his duties, and he has referenced a graft incident to the DCI concerning him, “Money has been spent but the documents have been hidden. I’ve already reported that to the DCI and EACC.”

Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa has also faulted the Governor, saying Trans Nzoia residents want development, “We don’t want to lag behind anymore, we are tired and want him to wake up,” he said. Governor Khaemba has come under criticisms on several occasions, with development matters placed under the microscope. The issue if misuse of funds had also been previously highlighted, with the health sector particularly picked out.
