Bungoma ward administrators names out

03 April 2014, 21:52

Bungoma - The Bungoma County Public Service Board has released the names of 45 ward administrators, who will soon be deployed to different parts of the county after undergoing induction training.

10 out of the 45 successful applicants for the posts in the list released yesterday,are women, after they too underwent a vigorous interview process by the board.

Speaking to journalists, Gideon Sirai, the chairperson of the county public service board said they considered the constitutional requirements of  regional balance and marginalized groups in coming up with the list.

Sirai said they tried as much as possible to have a line-up that reflects the face of the county, while at the same time exercising caution not to lower or compromise on quality and qualifications of the individual applicants.

“ Its all inclusive, for the first time we got people from small and marginalized groups like the Bong’omek and even Teso communities, who have not been considered in previous positions,” said Sirai.

The Bungoma County Executive member in charge of Public Administration Mokin Arap Ptang’uny said the ward administrators will undergo intensive ten day induction training from next week, where they will be briefed about their roles, devolution and how they are to discharge their mandate.

Concerning the issue of whether the ward administrators will serve in their  respective wards  or be transferred to different regions, that has sparked fears among Members County Assembly (MCA's) who it is understood believe the administrators may outshine them, Arap Ptang’uny said a decision will be made next week in a cabinet meeting.

“It is a policy issue and I will present the matter during a cabinet meeting of the executive on Tuesday for discussion.  We will also decide if we can liaise with the national government   for the officers together with the sub-county administrators to get paramilitary training from the Administration Police College,” said Arap Ptang’uny.
