Governor Malombe moves Kivunzi, four others in mini Chief Officers' shakeup

Kitui Governor Dr. Julius Malombe has moved five Chief Officers  barely a year  after their appointment.
Kitui Governor Dr Julius Malombe.

The governor made public changes on the accounting  officers through a Kenya Gazette notice dated 6th September 2023. 

Key among the new changes is in the department of Trade, Industry, MSMEs, and County Economic Investment zones where Michael Mutisya Kalii who served as CO for Land and Housing now moves in to replace Stephen Makau   Musili alias Kivunzi as the accounting officer. 

Kivunzi is the immediate former MCA for Kyuso and a former Majority Chief Whip in the second County Assembly of Kitui. He replaces Mr. Kalii at the the Lands and Housing docket. 

Mr. Kalii, a former senior banker comes from Kiomo/ Kyethani ward in Mwingi West and is the only chief officer drawn from the constituency. 

Others affected in by the first ever reshuffle by the county boss include Gladys Mami Wambua who was the CO for Irrigation. She now moves to Agriculture and fisheries in the same capacity. 

Her position at the Irrigation docket has been taken up by Bretta Mwangangi who was the chief officer for Culture, Gender and social services.

Ms Nelly Kavuu Mutisya who was the Chief Officer for Agriculture & Fisheries has been re-assigned duties to Culture, Gender and social services. 

Meanwhile in the same Gazette notice, Tourism Cabinet Secretary Ms Peninah Malonza has appointed a Mwingi West UDA politician Mr. Muthengi Ngere to be a board member at the Kenya Tourism Board. Ng'ere expressed interest in the Mwingi West Parliamentary seat during the last elections but bowed out of the race to pave way for former Kyome/Thaana ward MCA Alex Wambua who was the  UDA candidate in the ballot.
