Bomet Woman Rep Linet Chepkorir Toto Accused of Nepotism


Linet Chepkorir, a Bomet Woman Representative popularly known as Toto, is embroiled in a legal dispute before the Employment and Labor Relations Court in Nairobi. Two Bomet citizens are accusing the rookie member of nepotism.

Toto is charged with favoritism in the complaint brought by Collins Barno and Stanley Kiprotich for allegedly giving her close family members preference when it comes to employment openings in her office. Six of the 15 employees Toto recruited are related, according to the two complainants.

According to Barno and Kiprotich, the appointments were made without following the principles of the constitution, which call for openness, merit, and honesty. Due to the fact that just three of the 15 staff employees are female, the nominations also broke the two-thirds gender requirement established by the constitution.

The complainants further disclosed to the court that Toto was abusing county resources by using her family. The Labor Court was informed that the six suspected family members were receiving a total of Ksh612,000 out of the Ksh811,000 allotted for staff salaries.

The six relatives perform important responsibilities including County Manager, Deputy Manager, County Coordinator, Field Officer, Communications Officer, and Medical Personnel in the Woman Representative’s office.

In their request for the appointments to be rescinded, Barno and Kiprotich said that failing to do so would create a dangerous precedent in the nation that would allow for the illegal and irregular creation of public institutions and positions.
