Mombasa Governor, Hassan Joho, Friday announced his partial cabinet where four County Executive Committee Members (CECs) retained their jobs. 

The County has been without a cabinet for the last two months following the expiry of a two-year contract of 10 executive committee members on November 12, 2019.

The CECs were asked to hand over their offices to their respective chief officers who were to take charge of the departments until the announcement of the new cabinet.

On Monday this week, the Commission for Human Rights and Justice (CHRJ) wrote to Joho and gave him 14 days to appoint a new cabinet or face legal suit.

Its executive director Julius Ogogoh said the delay was denying the residents the right to get services arising from the appointments.
