Outgoing Governor Wambora’s decision to skip was not immediately established. His seat remained empty for the better part of the swearing in ceremony for the new governor.

Outgoing Embu County Secretary Johansson Nyaga led the transition team that was organising the swearing in ceremony for governor Mbarire.

The team that was organising the swearing in confirmed yesterday that Mr Wambora was expected to attend the swearing in ceremony.

Wambora's administration has been criticized by the locals with locals accusing the county government for failing to deliver in development matters. 

He served Embu County for two consecutive years.

Regretted the suffering

In her first speech after swearing in, Embu Governor Cecily Mbarire regretted that the county has suffered what she termed as untold levels of underdevelopment even after receiving huge chunk of money from the national government.

"It is regrettable that development in the county has not been achieved to the expectations of the locals in our county. Ten years down the line we have received billions in the county but the administration which has been in place has failed our people,"Mbarire said.

Governor Mbarire promised to revive the Health sector which she said it is on its deathbed.

"Our hospitals are suffering. They have no medicine. This will come to an end under my leadership,"Mbarire noted.

She also promised to lock out all the loopholes that were being used to loot the public resources in the county.

The ceremony is still on.
