Interviews to replace suspended PS' kick off
22 May 2015, 17:36
Nairobi - The government has started the process of interviewing persons for the jobs of permanent secretaries in various ministries.
The Public Service Commision PSC will interview 110 persons in total over a period of 1 week for the positions which have been left vacant following the sacking of certain individuals linked to corruption cases.
The persons named were forced to resign from office by president Uhuru Kenyatta after being named in an anti corruption report by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC.
According to sources close to the interviews, there are a number of well known faces and names in the list of interviewees.
Former permanent secretaries, heads of state corporations, ambassadors and private sector players are all on the list, eyeing the important public jobs.
" The list reads of the who and who in diplomacy, public service and private sector," the source that did not want to be named said.
PSC chair-lady Prof Margaret Kobia said that the process would be open, free and fair.
" It is a very open process and interviewees will be given equal opportunities to audition for these jobs," she said last week.
The PSC advertised for the jobs last month, with the president indicating that he was keen on replacing the officers suspended from office.
