Former Municipal council workers won't be sacked

12 September 2013, 11:24 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Vihiga county governor Moses Akaranga has assured former Municipal Council workers of their jobs in the county government.

Akaranga noted that many people were working with fear and ineffectively because they did not know of their fate in the current recruitment of workers that is taking place in the county.

“When you were employed by the defunct councils, you had proved to be effective. There is no way that I will sack anyone who qualifies to be where he is,” said Akaranga.

He was addressing public workers workers yesterday at Mbale grounds where he emphasised on the need for workers to take responsibility of their positions in the county.

The meeting was a series of many other meetings that the governor has planned to meet workers all over the county and engage them on one on one basis.

“Anyone who is giving out quality services to the people in the county cannot be phased off from the county government. We are only going to lay off those people who are acting like they have no obligation to undertake,” he said.

He expressed his optimism in the team that he has under him and that he inherited from the defunct municipal council saying that in the few months since elections, they have shown commitment.

The governor also said that he was going to foster unity among workers by harmonising their pay to mark the high cost of living.

“Those people who will work hard in their receptive positions will be promoted without further delay, and their welfare taken care of,” he said.

He asked the individuals tasked with revenue collection in the county to be transparent and desist from fleecing the county of the money collected or else risk facing charges when the audit of county books of account is through.
