County Assembly Halts Employment of Health Workers

Nyandarua County Assembly has stopped the ongoing recruitment of county health workers, citing lack of transparency.

The assembly now wants the exercise repeated, starting with re-advertisement of the positions to ensure transparency, inclusivity and confidence in the process.

County Assembly members said that the exercise has locked out already-serving contract workers who had applied for the positions.

“The County Public Service Board (CPSB) failed to consider contract staff for positions they applied for and for which they were qualified, a move that is discriminatory and against the principles of equity, social justice and good governance.

“Some people who had applied for the positions may no longer be interested in participating in the interviews,” said nominated MCA Stephen Mureithi.

The members agreed that within a week, the Board should provide the assembly with all information required for qualified people to apply for the positions.

The Board members will also appear before the Committee on Public Service, Administration and Devolution on Wednesday next week for grilling on the recruitment process.
