Public service riddled with unqualified personnel

17 December 2015, 14:19

Nairobi - The Public Service Commission's Statutory (PSC) Annual Report 2015 has revealed that only 15 per cent workers in government ministries have a university degree.

The remaining have diplomas, primary school certificates, with a whopping 3 per cent which is equivalent to 1 667 workers having no academic qualifications at all.

According to the report published on Standard, state corporations have the highest number of qualified staff, with 3 678 PhD holders, but also have the highest number of non-certificate holders at 3 308.

In the entire public service, only 30 per cent have degrees, with about 10 per cent having only Primary school certificates or no qualifications at all.
