President Uhuru Kenyatta has fired former Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) governor from plum job.
The former Kajiado governor David ole Nkedianye has lost his job as chairman of the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority board.
He had only served in the post for one year.
Nkedianye was immediately replaced after his firing.
In a gazette notice on Friday, President Kenyatta replaced the former ODM governor with Mr Erick Okeyo.
Mr Nkedianye’s stint to run for the next two years was cut short.
Mr Okeyo’s term will run for three years. He is the former chairman of the Lake Victoria South Water Services Board.
Mr Nkedienye got a soft landing in February 2019 after he lost the 2017 Kajiado gubernatorial race to Joseph ole Lenku.
Mr Nkedianye, a close ally of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, won the Kajiado governor’s seat on an ODM ticket in 2013.
Other governors who landed State jobs include former Laikipia governor Joshua Irungu, now heading the Water Services Regulatory Board while Machakos gubernatorial race loser Wavinya Ndeti now heads the Kenya Water Institute board.
