He went on to add that the biometric headcount done by the county government verified 6,150 workers while 186 workers were not verified since they did not show up for the exercise.

“I gave a directive that every County employee comes for biometric verification and those that did not come I said let them be scrapped from the payroll, here in Machakos we shall not condone mediocrity,” said Wavinya.
