Get rid of ghost workers, Senators tell governors

 

Counties have been urged to clean their wage bill and ascertain the number of their employees in order to eliminate ghost workers.
Senators through the Public Accounts and Investment Committee (PAIC) said by doing so the counties will be able to address to perennial issue of bolted wage bill that has ailed the devolved units.

This came after the Auditor General questioned the amount totaling Sh31 million paid by county government of Kiambu to unspecified number of its employees.

Appearing before the committee to answer to the audit queries, Kiambu Governor William Kabogo defended his government, saying the payment was done to the workforce inherited by the former municipal councils, but could not tell the number of employees that were paid.

Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi and Mombasa Hassan Omar sought more clarity, demanding to know why the county government had not made a deliberate attempt to clean its wage bill in order to save taxpayers money.

“Indeed Kiambu has continued to lay off unnecessary skills and workforce in attempt to re- define our wage bill,” Kabogo said in his response to the senators.
