WHY NYANDARUA COUNTY SECRETARY RESIGNED



Internal wrangles in the Nyandarua county government may have caused County Secretary Charles Kireru to resign. Kireru, who served for only six months, tendered his resignation letter to Governor Daniel Waithaka citing commitment to further his education.

He becomes the third person in the governor’s office to resign in the last three months for what is believed to be ‘political’ reasons. The others are James Wakaba, who was the economic adviser and Mwangi Nyaga (political adviser). Kireru’s exit is believed to be as a result of differences with senior officers. Kireru intended to resign last week when the governor was on a tour of Germany, but Deputy Governor Waithaka Mwangi convinced him otherwise.

It is believed that County Assembly Speaker Ndegwa Wahome had also tried to convince him not to resign. The deputy governor told The Standard there are serious wrangles in the county government, but did not disclose further details.
