Ms Lily Chepngetich Ngok is poised to become the next Kericho Deputy Governor after Governor Paul Chepkwony nominated her for the position on Thursday, two days after the burial of the immediate former office holder who succumbed to Covd-19.

Former Kericho Deputy Governor Ms Susan Kikwai, who had served in the position for the last eight years, succumbed to Covid-19 complications on March 20, at Siloam hospital. 

Governor Chepkwony on Thursday afternoon forwarded the name of the nominee to the County Assembly for vetting and if endorsed, Ms Ngok will be appointed to the position.

Ms Ngok is currently the County Executive Committee member in charge of Education, Sports, Culture and Social Services.

“I hereby nominate Ms Ngok as the Deputy Governor, County Government of Kericho for the remainder of my tenure of administration pursuant to the provisions of Article 182(2) of the Constitution as read with section 32 (C) and 32 (D) of the County Governments’ Act (Act. No 11 of 2020), and Section 22, 25 and 26 of the Election Act, 2011,” Prof Chepkwony said in a letter addressed to Speaker of the County Assembly Dominic Rono.

Prof Chepkwony said the nominee is from Kipkelion East constituency, where the late Ms Kikwai hailed from and that the nomination “addresses continuity, in the distribution of elective seats and gender balance.”

Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, Woman Rep Florence Bore, MPs Joseph Limo (Kipkelion West), Nelson Koech (Belgut), Mr Japeth Mutai (Belgut), Mrs Beatrice Kones (Bomet East) and Sylvanus Maritim all rallied behind the call.

“There are women with administrative and leadership skills in this county, majority are of high integrity and would fit into the shoes of our fallen sister. Honour us women by picking the next DG from among them,” said Mrs Bore.
