Makueni County Assembly has now moved to intervene following the non-payment of cleaners in markets, hospitals, and other facilities for more than 3 months.

Kikumbulyu south MCA Jades Kalunda requesting a statement informed the Assembly that the cleaners who belong to the lowest cadre of staff in the County had not received their monthly pay for 3 months despite the hardships occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Other members of staff for the county have been paid for the last 3 months yet them they have not been paid for the last 3 months yet their salaries are meager. Are we as an assembly in order to stand here to represent people yet the smallest cadre in the society have not been paid.” Jades Kalinda said.

Makueni County Assembly speaker Douglas Mbilu urged the committee to take action once they get to know the truth of the matter on the same.

“Confirm the authenticity, whether it’s true or not, and if indeed it is, the executive committee member in charge of devolution and public service to report to this house and yourself within 7 days,” Mbilu said.

The county is said to have received over 600 million from the National Government as an equitable share.
