Police in Nyamira are investigating circumstances under which a car belonging to Deputy Governor Amos Nyaribo was vandalised.
The vehicle was vandalised by unknown people at Governor John Nyagarama's parking lot, causing anxiety in the county on Monday.
All the four tyres were deflated with one side mirror also taken away by the people whose identity is not yet known.
Nyamira County Commissioner Amos Mariba said "the matter is being handled by the police. Let them do their job."
Police cordoned off the site with virtually all top county officials keeping mum over the bizarre incident.
However, the vandalism comes amid frosty relationship between Nyagarama and Mr Nyaribo.
Nyagarama is serving his second term.
Last week, Nyaribo wrote a letter to County Public Service Board demanding to be served with documents on recruitment of 34 health workers.
Nyaribo, in the letter, said: "I want to be served with letters of advertisement and the procedure used if any. This is quite urgent."
A County Executive Committee Member (CECM) who spoke to Hivisasa on condition of anonymity said: "the DG wants to hide in non-issues to antagonise his boss."
Last year, Justice Mumbi Ngugi ruled that any state officer under investigations should step aside until cases are complete.
Nyaribo has been having an unpredictable relationship with Nyagarama, with the two often facing each other in court.
