Governor Ottichilo suspends two chief officers, reshuffles cabinetVihiga Governor Wilber Ottichilo has suspended two Chief Officers involved in the scandalous hiring of 518 health workers early last year.Only 149 workers were supposed to be employed. Chief Officers for Public Health and Medical Services Clement Manyulu and Arnold Mamadi respectively were found to have flouted employment rules in the hiring of the staff. Among other recommendations, it recommends that action be taken against Chief Officers for Medical Services and Public Health who were directly involved in the recruitment process,” Ottichilo said. County Executive Committee Members and Chief Officers have hence been reshuffled. He noted the county was grappling with the question of staff employment in the department of health services beyond the requisition and the budget.
