County focuses on staff progression for enhanced service delivery

Machakos Governor, Ms. Wavinya Ndeti, has said that the county government will put in place proper structures to ensure staff progression for enhanced service delivery.

Ndeti noted that for a long time, workers and especially doctors have complained of lack of promotions and promised that she will look into their welfare to boost their morale.

“Some workers stay in one job group for ten years; it is unfair for them. They have complained, but nobody listens to them, “she said, adding that going forward, workers would be promoted based on merit to ensure fairness.

“It is quite unfortunate that new staff is recruited at senior job groups while their counterparts who have served for a long time remain at the lower cadres. As the governor, I will not allow that to continue,” added Ndeti.

The governor, who was speaking outside her office when she received a taskforce report on county personnel, also directed the department of human resources to clean the payroll and expunge workers who were not captured biometrically.

“Human resources has been a problem; people go behind my back and manipulate the payroll. We shall work within the law, and those culpable will be held responsible,” said Ndeti.

The governor also sounded a warning to workers with fake documents.

In the task force report presented to the governor by Mr. Gregory Simba, 376 workers do not have academic certificates, while 2,889 workers lack academic transcripts. The report also indicated 1,378 workers do not have confirmation letters, while contracts for 207 workers have expired.
