PS For Correctional Services Who Has Resigned

Esther Ngero, the Principal Secretary of Correctional Services in Kenya, has resigned just a few days after being reassigned to a different department. According to reports, she cited personal reasons for her decision to step down from her position. Ngero had been in office for only five months before her resignation.

The news of Ngero's resignation came as a surprise to many as she had been recently appointed to help oversee the reform of Kenya's prison system. She was tasked with implementing various strategies aimed at improving the conditions of prisons and reducing overcrowding.

Ngero's resignation has raised concerns about the stability of the Correctional Services department. The department has been plagued with numerous challenges, including prison riots, corruption, and outdated facilities. It's hoped that her successor will continue Ngero's efforts to address these challenges.

This resignation comes at a time when the government is working on various reforms to improve the criminal justice system. President Uhuru Kenyatta has recently announced a plan to pardon nearly 9,000 petty offenders as part of his efforts to decongest prisons and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The resignation of a top government official is not a new phenomenon in Kenya. The country has witnessed numerous cases of high-profile resignations over the years due to a variety of reasons, including corruption allegations, personal reasons, and political pressure.

However, it's important to note that such resignations can have a negative impact on the government's ability to deliver on its promises. It can also affect the morale of employees who may become demoralized by the frequent turnover of top officials.

The resignation of Esther Ngero as the Principal Secretary of Correctional Services is a setback for the government's efforts to reform the criminal justice system. However, it's important to respect her decision as personal reasons can be a valid reason for stepping down from a high-pressure position. The government must now work to find a suitable replacement for her and continue the work of reforming the prison system.
