Waiguru admits error in counties' payroll system

05 February 2014, 14:37 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru has admitted that a number of civil servants did not receive their January allowances due to a hitch in the payroll function that was transferred to counties last month.

According to Waiguru, the error affected civil servants in 23 countries and in two out of these counties the allowances are being processed through a voucher system, while in the remaining 21 counties the arrears are being processed in this month’s payroll.

“During the transfer of the IPPD system to county governments, a critical function that processes allowances for specific cadres in the service was inadvertently not activated. As a result a number of civil servants did not receive their allowances during January 2014,” said Waiguru.

However, she the error will not affect the servant’s salaries.

The number of staff serving in the counties is 65,951, according to the CS.

“It should be emphasized that the error does not in any way affect salaries but only certain allowances paid to some categories of staff and do not apply across board to all public officers,” Waiguru said, and assured them that the problem has since been rectified.

She commended county governments for their efforts in ensuring that the payroll was transferred successfully and payment of salaries done in a timely manner.

“We regret any inconveniences occasioned to the affected civil servants and appeal to them to remain calm and patient since the problem has been noted and rectified,” said Waiguru.
