Vihiga county public service board has initiated a process to surcharge three senior officers Sh300,480 paid to a person who was not an employee of the county, for a period of three months.

In a letter written by the board’s CEO Vincent M’maitsi that leaked to the press and addressed to the acting county secretary and head of public service, Philip Gavuna, it has indicated that he and two other officers will be surcharged in equal measures.

“At its meeting of March 3, 2020, under MIN:11/3/03/2020, the county public service board reviewed the situation in the case of one Henry Anjila and noted that he had been paid arrears of three months, totalling to Sh300,480, whereas he was not an employee of the county of Vihiga,” part of the letter indicates.

It further notes that the board resolved that the money must be recovered and that the officers who had been directly involved in the matter be surcharged the amount.

Other officers to be surcharged together with Gavuna include Pamela Busungu, chief officer in the Department of Agriculture and John Naviava, secretary to the board.

Anjila is purportedly said to have been brought into the county, through an inter-county transfer from Garissa county. He was employed as a principal livestock officer in May last year after he sent an application letter to Gavuna through Ms. Busungu.
