Roads Minister Franklin Bett has vehemently criticized the criteria used to evaluate performance contracting targets among government ministries and State corporations, saying that the new rankings do not reflect the actual reality on the ground.  Bett is now threatening to withdraw his ministry from future performance programmes unless the assessment criterion is reviewed.

“I have asked my Permanent Secretary to write to the Ministry of Public Service with a view of puling out of the performance contracting system until appropriate assessors are appointed“ he said.

Speaking in Kisumu while on a road inspection tour of the Southern by-pass, the Minister rubbished the rankings that showed the Ministry of roads as the worst performer in service delivery, saying that the rankings have tremendously demoralized the ministry’s staff.

The responsibility of evaluating technical ministries lacked the expertise to understand the workings under those ministries.
Mr. Bett said the performance contracting methodology must be reviewed so that technical expertise is incorporated instead of leaving to what he termed as “people from human  resources department who cannot understand the work of engineers”

The Minister cited the ongoing construction of the Thika superhighway, the recent launch of the Nairobi southern by-pass and several other multi-billion roads constructed countrywide as some of the major achievements under his docket.
