Monday November 26, 2018– More than 300 Nyamira County employees will miss their November salary for being absent from duty.
This was announced by Head of Public Service, Erick Aori, in consultation with Governor, John Nyagarama.
Through a circular dated Friday, November 23rd, Aori directed that the salaries of over 300 County employees be withheld until the County Government establishes their whereabouts when a roll call was taken a week ago.
The decision to withhold salaries was arrived at during the meeting with Nyagarama, where the Chief Officers were asked to verify the whereabouts of the said staff within a period of 30 days before any payments can be released.
Last week, Aori made an impromptu visit in all County offices and found out that only a few members of staff had reported to work by 9.00 am.
Currently, Nyamira County Government has employed over 4,500 workers with the health department having the largest share.
