Nepotism at Kenya Pipeline Company
17 July 2013, 10:31
Nairobi - It has been revealed that State-owned Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) has some employees who had as many as five relatives on the firm’s payroll, Business Daily reports.
In a brief to parliamentary committee on Energy on Tuesday, Human resource director Rose Minja, who disowned the hiring practice, said the trend had kicked off in 2003 and was normally done when she was away on leave.
Other top officials who appeared before the panel, including suspended managing director Selest Kilinda, admitted to the nepotism claims, lending credence to an Efficiency Monitoring Unit (EMU) report that had recommended, among other things, his sacking and that of five other senior managers.
