“I recieved a letter on April 1 2020 from Barchok stating my end period of working as the county secretary has been terminated and efforts to reach to governor more clarification never bear any fruits”, Mrs Rono lamented.

Rono also applied for stay orders to stop the recruitment of the new county secretary until the matter has been heard bad determined by court.

Rono was serving her second term in office since she was appointed on 23 October 2017by late former Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso.
