The government will ensure that there are no ghost workers exist in Uasin Gishu, the governor has said.
According to Mr Jackson Mandago, all workers are obligated to deliver services based on the duties assigned to them.
“I don’t want people lazing around in the county government of Uasin Gishu purporting to be workers yet we have so many jobless youths out there who are educated and qualified to hold the positions, let us work so that we can recognise fast development in the county projects,” he said on Wednesday.
He also urged workers to merge their Constitutional rights with responsibilities at work.
The governor was speaking at the Eldoret Polytechnic during an induction programme for chairpersons and members of County Public Service Boards of Elgeyo Marakwet, Uasin Gishu, Kericho and Nandi counties.
Mandago also noted the need for sufficient human resource for efficient service delivery to Kenyans as the implementation of devolution process takes root.
He also highlighted the need to have literate workers stating that human resource in any organisation is the essential commodity in driving the economy of a country.
“Going forward in the new dispensation we need to manage our human resource by reflecting on our financial resources because they go hand in hand and it is our duty to meet the expectations of all Kenyans,” Mr Mandago said.
He however noted that the county government is still in the process of advertising vacant positions and creating clear job descriptions.
“We are still advertising for more jobs because we want to merge the staff number with the budget allocation to meet their salaries,” Mr Mandago said.
The Public Service Commission, in partnership with the Transition Authority, has rolled out a series of induction programmes which target all County Public Service Boards.
