MURANG'A governor-elect Mwangi wa Iria yesterday made an impromptu inspection of county administration offices.
Accompanied by his deputy, Augustine Gakure Mwonyo, wa Iria visited the Murang'a County Assembly that is under rehabilitation before visiting General Ihura Stadium where the swearing-in ceremony of county officials will be held.
Unlike in other counties where leaders have rejected offices earmarked by the Transition Authority, wa Iria, who is a former Kenya Cooperative Creameries Managing Director, said he appreciated the works.
The setting up of the county assembly has disrupted operations at Murang'a Municipal offices that have been relocated to the Telkom building.
Wa Iria later met county assembly members at Hotel Nokras to spell out his developmental agenda for the next five years.
Yesterday, Murang'a County Commissioner Kula Hache said a committee has been formed to plan how the swearing-in ceremony will be conducted.
"There is a committee charged with responsibility of preparing the ground for the ceremony where the governor and other county officials will be sworn in," he said.
Leaders have agreed that Murang'a county offices will serve as the governor's office while municipal offices will act as the county assembly.
Councils in the region have already handed over assets and liabilities to the Transition Authority.
The Star has not established the debt figures the county government will inherit from the councils.Meanwhile, tenants who had rented offices at the authority's premises have been issued with a vacate notice.
Majority of council staff have also been affected after their offices were taken over by the governor's office.
