Dennis Onsarigo resigns as Nyamira County Chief of Staff

Dennis Onsarigo has tendered his resignation as the Chief of Staff at Nyamira County government over alleged poor working conditions.

Through a letter to the Governor, Dennis noted that a number of unknown people are working to ensure that service delivery is not met in the county.

“Over the course of my tenure, I have encountered what would be best described as deliberate strategy that has imposed itself in the way of service delivery and impeded our ability to fully realize our vision,” he said

The former aide to ODM party leader Raila Odinga confirmed he had made several attempts to discuss the matter with the Governor but his request was not met. Even his effort to streamline functions at the office of the Governor failed.

“As you may be aware, I made several attempts, more than six times, to seek an audience with you to discuss an elaborate plan on how best the office of the chief of staff would function in the execution of your mandate while supporting other departments; unfortunately, this did not materialise.

The plan to refurbish the office of the governor and build a modern toilet to save us from embarrassing episodes of panic when we have many visitors paying us a visit was also not a possibility. The washrooms’s renovation has failed to capture the most essential part of what constitutes a functioning washroom: running water and toiletries.” he said

The former KTN journalist continued by saying that he also had plans to bring in a protocal officer his efforts were also not met.

It is due to the obstacles that he believes has caused loss of confidence in the office of the Governor by the people and opened doors for people to steal county funds.

Other than being the aide to hon. Raila Odinga, Dennis Onsarigo has also served in the County Government of Taita Taveta.
