Government to transfer all staff in lands registries across the country.

Lands Chief Administration Secretary (CAS) Gideon Mung’aro has said that the ministry is in the process of transferring all officers working in the various registries across the country in a bit to boost service delivery to wananchi and tame the run away corruption within these departments. 

“It is an ongoing exercise to transfer all those officers who have overstayed in one station since it brings about complacency and bleeds corruption. We have already moved all the clerks who were working in Ardhi House and we are now in the process of moving about 600 others across the country,” explained Mung’aro while responding to questions from the press during a fact finding mission in Thika.

He added that all those who will be transferred from the ministry would be redeployed to other government departments away from the lands ministry.

However, the CAS warned that anyone who will be caught engaging in graft or any form of irregularities while on duty that stern disciplinary action will be taken against them which may lead to dismissal or subsequent prosecution in a court of law.

“We are not going to transfer corruption from Thika to another place. If anyone will be caught involving themselves in graft, they will be suspended, interdicted and if found culpable they will be sent home and prosecuted,” he warned.

Mung’aro appealed to Kenyans to volunteer information that will help expose graft in the ministry.

He promised an end to people’s suffering once all the ministry’s data will get digitised.
