Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti has revealed the number of people suspected to be ghost workers in Machakos.
Speaking in Nguluni, Wavinya said that 500 people did not show up for the recently concluded Human Resource audit that involved a head count of all staff.
“There are no exceptions and any employee who does not comply will be expunged from the payroll and disciplinary action commenced against them,” a letter addressed to all county employees in November notifying them of the headcount read in part.
She noted that this was the way to ensure that no more ghost workers in the county and peoples tax was utilised well not being misused.
“People came to be checked for their qualifications. 500 people never showed and I know that more will follow suit, all I ask from you is time, I will not victimize anyone or sack anyone,” said Wavinya.
“If someone as the right qualifications no one can do anything about it. You will never be sacked for having the right qualifications,there is a law but I will not condone corruption or injustices, you can take me where you want I will not allow it,” she added.
In October While commissioning the Human Resource Audit Taskforce, Governor Wavinya revealed some national government findings on the payroll including cases of double salaries, shared bank accounts, same payroll numbers, and different pins, under 18s on the payroll among other issues.
