Waiguru says biometric registration to reduce wage bill

25 September 2014, 22:59 Wilshere

Nakuru - Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru has said that the biometric registration will help reduce the swollen wage bill in the country.

Waiguru said that the new system of registration is one way of ensuring they have all the records of the public servants in the country.

“This is one step the National government is taking of ensuring that we reduce the huge national wage bill,” she said.

Speaking on Tuesday at Nakuru headquarters during the launch of biometric registration, Waiguru noted that the new system will help weed out workers who have been collecting double salaries.

The cabinet secretary said that the new move by the National government should not be viewed as a way of retrenching workers but instead as way of fighting corruption.

Waiguru maintained that her ministry will not relent in the fight against ghost workers in all the public offices in the country.  

She also called on the county governments to continue working closely with the central government in order to ensure all public workers have been captured in the new system.

“County governments should continue to ensure we work closer with them because we want to make sure there are no more ghost workers in in public offices,” she said.

Nakuru County  governor Kinuthia Mbugua said that the new system will help the county governments be able to budget well their money.

Mbugua said that any worker who will not be registered in the new system risks being fired.

“Everyone worker in this county must be captured or else we will fire you because we have to fight corruption in our institutions,” he said.
