Nairobi - Public Service Commission is drafting new recruitment policy guides to ensure all tribes are represented in government offices, after it emerged that only 4 tribes dominate the government workforce.
Employees from the Kikuyu community make up approximately 23 percent of government workforce, followed by Kalenjin who control 12.8, Luhya at 12.2 per cent and Kamba at 10 per cent while the Galla, Konso, Galjeel, Leysan and Kenyan Americans are not represented at all.
According to The Star, the new draft policy seeks to promote diversity in Public Service by recruiting workers from all tribes and ensure that marginalized and minority groups are represented in government offices.
Therefore, besides the normal qualifications, the government will also look at tribe during recruitment and promotions.
