Holly Edward Okwama, who once served as an altar boy at St. Joseph Migori Omboo Catholic church in his peer days is poised to become a member of the Public Service Board.

Okwama was selected among the candidates to be vetted for the vacant Migori County Public Service Board. 

This follows the disbandment of the previous public service board on allegations of frustrating Governor Ayacko’s administrative roles.

Okwama who is currently a city lawyer contested for Migori County senate aspirant in the 2022 August polls on ODM party and lost to Eddy Oketch.

Having worked up the ladder, and coming from a humble background, he has been at the forefront of championing for the rights of the less fortunate in the corridors of justice.

The appointments are in line with the provisions of the County Government (Amendment) Act. 2020 and Section 7(4) and (5) of the County Assembly Approval Act No. 5 of 2017. 

In a notice that appeared in one of the national dailies, the vetting committee will on April 18, 2023 interview the five people shortlisted for the positions.

Other candidates to be vetted alongside Okwama include Ms Ruth Adhiambo Okowa, Ms Eunice Atieno Onyango, Mr Barack Okello Ogal and Ms Judith Achieng Ododa.

The new board will replace the one that was headed by the former Awendo MP Jared Kopiyo, who was impeached by the current assembly.
