Civil servants face early retirement

Nairobi - The government is conducting an audit in its departments to determine the actual number of workers each has before it embarks on their transfer to counties, redeployment or early retirement.
The pay rise of about 200,000 civil servants has already been put on hold while others retired early, in the efforts to restructure the government, Daily Nation reports.
Speaking at the weekend, Planning and Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru, said the dismissal of some civil servants was inevitable since Kenyans passed the new Constitution with high hopes of development which was not happening now because of high spending by the government.
Waiguru also directed her ministry to stop recruiting new civil servants and suspend pay and allowance increments.
She refuted claims that the government was broke saying they had KES 50 billion in excess in the Central Bank.
