The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

A face-off looms in the El­geyo Marak­wet county as­sem­bly as MCAs de­mand can­cel­la­tion of fresh re­cruit­ment of em­ploy­ees.

On Thurs­day last week, MCAs, led by Kapyego’s Ben­son Kip­tire, ac­cused speaker Albert Kochei of spear­head­ing fresh re­cruit­ment against rec­om­men­da­tions to freeze hir­ing to lower the wage bill.

Kip­tire said they agreed with the speaker in a Ka­mukunji to stop fur­ther re­cruit­ment. In­ter­views for re­cently ad­ver­tised jobs were on­go­ing as the MCAs ad­dressed the press on Fri­day.
