Kiambu County conducts headcount to weed out ghost workers

Kiambu County Government has launched a head count of all its staff as part of efforts to eliminate ghost workers. 

In a post on his official Facebook Page, Governor Ferdinand Waititu noted that there have been reports that some retirees might have been on the county's payroll and were still receiving salaries. 

"Today my administration is undertaking routine staff head counts and verification exercises in Thika, Gatundu North and Gatundu South Sub County headquarters.There have been reports that some people on payroll may be retirees but still receive salaries," said Waititu.

The exercise is intended to clean the payroll, develop a skills inventory, reconcile personnel records, determine bona fide county employees and manage the huge wage bill. Through this, the county hopes to reduce the recurrent expenditure significantly and add to the development budget as they seek to improve on service delivery to its people.

"The verification exercise will enable us weed out ghost workers, identify gaps in service delivery and establish the exact number of our employees. It will help us effectively deliver services to the people of Kiambu," he said.

In Thika, the employees converged at the Thika Sub-County offices where officials from the human human resource, monitoring  and  evaluation team conducted  the  count.

All the county employees in twelve sub-counties must participate  in the exercise.
