The Nyamira County Governor Amos Nyaribo has finally spoke about the recent audit exercise that was carried out to mob the irregularly promoted county employees.
In what he termed as a fair and transparent exercise that was carried out by a team appointed by his office led by the Human Resource manager Geoffrey Kiriago.
The report was submitted to the county Public Service Board for analysing and validation of the data. The Board is the one mandated for reviewing of various promotions and redesignation of county employees.
The board was therefore mandated to implement the report as per recommendations. “The affected members will be informed formally and those affected can make there appeals through the County public service Board for arbitration and decision making” the Governor noted in today’s press.
Some of the glaring cases of irregular promotions that were noted include;
Case number one ,an officer who was promoted every year since 2016. The officer moved from job group “K”in March 2016 to iob group “L “in August 2017 to group N in october 2018 and then job group P in March, 2019
