Ailing Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso set to return home

Ailing Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso is expected to return home from India where she has been receiving treatment.

in a statement issued on Monday evening Dr Laboso would be returning to the country, but would not be resuming her official duties as she continues to receive medical care.

“The office of the governor would like to inform the residents of Bomet and the general public that the Governor is set to return home in a few days,” said Director of Communication Mr Ezra Kirui.

“Upon her return, however, the governor will continue with her medication reviews locally as per her doctor’s advice,” he added.

Laboso left her deputy, Dr Hillary Barchok, in charge of the county affairs with the assistance of County Secretary Ms Evalyne Rono.

A prayer meeting for her was held last month at the county headquarters.

Last Thursday former Bomet governor, Isaac Ruto and Chepalungu MP Gideon Koskei flew out to India to visit her days after Dr Barchok went to check on his boss.

Bomet Senator Christopher Langat, Woman Rep Joyce Korir, MPs Dominic Koskei (Sotik), Beatrice Kones (Bomet East) and Ms Beatrice Elachi have also visited the governor in India.

Others who went to check on her in hospital in London are ODM leader Raila Odinga, Chief Justice David Maraga and his wife Yucabeth, Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony and Konoin MP Brighton Yegon.

A week ago angry youths stormed the governor’s office accusing the county secretary of allegedly misusing her position to list people in the payroll.

There have also been claims of supremacy battles among senior officials at the county.
