Nakuru County govt set to flush out ghost workers
08 August 2013, 18:39
Nakuru county government on Thursday morning conducted a headcount exercise at old town hall to eliminate ghost workers at the council.
The deputy county secretary Geoffrey Kioko said that the exercise was aimed at establishing the number of workers employed by the county government.
“This is part of our routine to smoke out any ghost workers in the council and also establish how many staff we have in the council,” he said.
Kioko said some of the verifications conducted included checking the certificates and letters of appointment from all their staff.
He further said that similar exercise will be conducted in all the 11 sub-counties in the larger Nakuru county.
“We are looking at their credentials so that we can update our records and this will continue in all the other sub-counties,” he said.
Nakuru County Human Resource head Philip Rono said that so far, all the county staff had met the requirements set by the county government.
Rono noted that the exercise will also help the Transition Authority to authenticate genuine council workers.
“This headcount will greatly help the new authority to identify how many workers we have in the county,” he said.
