PANIC IN HOMABAY AS GOVERNOR GLADYS WANGA LAWYER RESIGNS
The County Government of Homabay and in particular the Governor’s office has for the past 10 months enjoyed the services of top legal counsel Silas Jakakimba. Apparently Jakakimba has penned his resignation in what looks like a moment to land a national government plum job. We are yet to know what Jakakimba’s new appointment will look like. See his social media copy of the resignation letter.
“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
RESIGNATION AS LEGAL ADVISOR, EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR, HOMA-BAY COUNTY
On October 11th, 2022, HE Governor Gladys Wanga bestowed on me the honour to serve as her Advisor, Legal Affairs. This appointment was premised on the mutual understanding that Homa-Bay County deserved a different tangent of leadership and in Gov.
Wanga, the hopes and aspirations of our people would be realized through devolution.
Whereas we still believe in this journey and give our Word to continue supporting the Governor to deliver on her mandate – and due to emerging and increasing commitments earlier unforeseen , I have today rendered my resignation from the said office, with immediate effect.
Even so, I wish to heartily thank Gov. Wanga for believing in me. I take this opportunity to reiterate my personal and our people’s continued belief in the incredible governance style that Gov. Wanga has grounded in Homa-Bay. The Governor can count on our unending and unconditional support in her obviously tireless efforts to see the devolution enterprise work for the people of Homa-Bay.
