Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki Thursday transferred 12 County Commissioners in changes.
He also recalled five others to the headquarters in a move aimed at addressing cases of insecurity in the areas.
Kindiki said this is aimed at enhancing service delivery within the National Government Administration cadres.
He said 24 other county commissioners will not be affected by the reorganization announced January 25.
“The deployment has been re-organized as follows to take effect on 1st February 1, 2024,” he said.
Abdirisack Jaldesa was moved from Mombasa to Nyandarua and will be replaced by Mohamed Nur who had been moved from Tana River.
Erastus Mbui was transferred from Kitui to Laikipia and will be replaced by Kipchumba Rutto who had been moved from Busia.

The areas have been experiencing cases of insecurity ranging from criminal gangs to political hooliganism and cattle rustling.
Kindiki promoted 12 deputy county commissioners to County Commissioners, in the latest reorganization at the Ministry of Interior.

The National Administration is key in delivering the government agenda in the regions.
Regional Commissioners usually chair security meetings and other national administration issues.
The former provincial administration was restructured to accommodate the new commissioners.
This followed the ushering of the 2010 constitution.
The RCs replaced Provincial Commissioners in the new dispensation.
They chair and coordinate national government issues in their regions including security matters.
National Administration is one of the Departments in the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government with a staff complement of 12,575 which includes eight Regional Coordinators, 47 County
Commissioners, 289 Deputy County Commissioners, 831 Assistant County Commissioners, 3,256 Chiefs and 8,145 Assistant Chiefs.
