The county boss arrived back in the country over the weekend and is expected to continue with her treatment in one of the local health facilities as per the advice of her doctors.

There has been growing concern, especially among the residents of Bomet who just like many other Kenyans were not privy to what their governor was ailing from and which remains a rather tightly-guarded secret.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga and Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, formerly State House spokesperson, paid Laboso a visit when she was still receiving treatment in London.

The former university don has reportedly been unwell for sometime and was forced to take medical leave to seek treatment.

A few days to the governor’s return, Bomet county communications director, Ezra Kirui, had already indicated she will continue receiving medical attention here in Kenya.

“The office of the governor would like to inform the residents of Bomet and the general public that the governor is set to return home in a few days.

Upon her return, however, the governor will continue with her medication reviews locally as per her doctor’s advice,” said Kirui in a statement.

During her stay abroad, her deputy Hillary Barchok was in charge of the operations and was being assisted by the county secretary Evelyn Rono and chief of staff Jayne Sigilai.
