Blow to Governor as MCAs send his point-men home

25 June 2014, 12:32 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua has suffered a blow after a report tabled in the county assembly recommended sacking of all the 38 ward and sub-county administrators.

According to the report by the committee in charge of Public Administration and Communication, it has been established that the hiring process was flawed and thus the exercise should be conducted afresh.

The committee launched investigations after some MCAs claimed that the recruitment process was not open, fair and free from discrimination.

Several residents had also lodged complaints and filed petitions contending that the recruitment process did not factor in gender and regional balances.

The committee said the exercise was marred with irregularities.

“In respect to gender balances in the posts of sub-county administrators, only two women were selected for the job yet four had the qualifications. In the posts of ward administrators, only nine women were selected,” said Gibson Kuria Wahinya, a petitioner.

He added that some of the candidates’ names did not appear in the list of applicants but were in the list of shortlisted and selected candidates.

The committee noted that none of the successfully appointees for the posts of sub-county administrators had a post-graduate diploma in management and administration though it was a prerequisite.

None of the persons living with disabilities was selected in any of the posts despite having applied, with the committee observing that five percent of the selected candidates should have been PWDs.

The investigating committee further found the County Public Service Board (CPSB) chairperson Alice Muita and Secretary Anthony Ndonga incompetent and unfit to hold their respective offices because of the errors in hiring of County government staff.

However, the six-member investigating committee disagreed over the report and two filed a dissenting document.

The two, Anthony Mwaniki Kanyiri (chairman) and Peter Kamau (his vice) noted that calling for a new recruitment process would be an injustice to some of those who met the set qualifications.
