In a recent instruction published by Public Service Commission(PSC) chairman Anthony Muchiri, the administration of President William Ruto has issued a warning to all governors.
The 40 governors who were recently elected for the first time have been forewarned after information surfaced that they want the right to remove chief officers and other employees chosen by their predecessors. The governors appointed their CoG leadership yesterday during an induction retreat in Mombasa.
Since of this, PSC Chair Mr. Muchiri has stated that they will not permit such moves because governors who arbitrarily fire county employees whose contracts are still in effect run the risk of running afoul of the law. He added that any state employees who were fired unlawfully will be reinstated by the administration.
County employees signed agreements that went beyond the requirements of the people who nominated them, but Mr. Muchiri claimed they couldn't be held accountable or punished for it.
What do you think of this situation thus far? Do you believe the government's decision to move forward is the right one? Feel free to comment below with your thoughts.
