Tension has gripped workers of Bomet County government over looming sackings and a reshuffle.
The county’s Human Resources Director Richard Sigei was the first one to sent on compulsory leave in unclear circumstances.
A reshuffle of senior officers and administrators is expected to be unveiled in what is expected to affect several departments.
Former Sotik Sub-County Administrator Linus Chepkwony was appointed to replace Mr Sigei in an acting capacity.
Mr Sigei had been accused of insubordination for the second time in a year and ward reps publicly vowed to have him impeached from office.
