Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony has suffered a blow after the county assembly vetting committee rejected half of the county executive committee (CEC) nominees.

The committee that was chaired by Speaker Dominic Rono said the nomination process did not meet the constitutional requirements of regional balance and inclusion of the disabled.

Some candidates were kicked out for not meeting the qualifications for the dockets they were nominated for.

Rejected nominees are Edna Ruto for Information Communication Youth, Sport and e-government, Hellen Ngeno for Trade industrialisation, Cooperative Management, Tourism and Wildlife, and Barnabas Ngeno for Lands, Housing and Physical Planning.
