West Pokot governor-elect Prof. John Lonyangapuo is the latest incoming county boss in the North Rift region to reject an expensive swearing-in fete.

The Assumption of office committee had budgeted Kshs 20 million for the event scheduled for Monday 21st August, but Prof. Lonyangapuo ordered that the budget be trimmed to Kshs 3.5 million.

Governor Lonyangapuo ordered that the rest of the money be channeled to settling insecurity problems along the border.

The swearing in ceremony will be held at Kishaunet Agricultural Showground, just five kilometers away from the County offices in Kapenguria.

The Council of Governors Chairman Josphat Nanok, who was on Saturday sworn in for a second term as the Governor for Turkana County, will grace the occasion.
