Chiefs assured of job security

19 June 2013, 14:57 James Kabotia

Kirinyaga County commissioner Joseph Keter has assured chiefs, assistant chiefs and other former officers working under provincial administration that their jobs are secured.

Speaking to chiefs at Kerugoya town, the County boss assured them that there is no need for alarm over their jobs saying that the issue has  been sorted out by the government.

He revealed that parliament has already enacted national government coordination act which clearly stipulates their duties pointing that the role will not be taken by any other agents.

Keter noted that most of the chiefs were worried and had started looking for other jobs fearing that they may be sacked.

“We have a law in place to protect your work; even the parliament enacted national government coordination act and constitution recognizes your work,” he noted.

The commissioner said that the national government must have officers to coordinate and oversee the work that has not been devolved at County level.

However, Keter noted that officers working to oversee national government must work closely with those elected at county level, saying  there is no need for friction between County Commissioners and Governors.

“Officers from national government and those at the counties must have symbiotic association where they depend on each other for the betterment of the mwananchi,” he noted.

His advised those who were planning to leave and apply for other jobs to hold their horses and continue giving services to public without any fear or favors.

Recently, court of appeal ruled that provincial administrators are in office legally overruling justice Mumbi Ngugi who had ruled that former president Mwai Kibaki bleached the law by appointing County Commissioners.
