Senate set to discuss Nyagarama’s government over skewed staff jobs

Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama is expected to face the Senate to explain claims of skewed employment in the executive arm of government.

Nyagarama has in the past been grilled by the Senate over alleged misappropriation of resources and grand corruption in his administration following the Sh7 million gate among other high-profile graft-related claims.

The recent petition by civil rights activist Reuben Kibegwa was tabled in the Senate on Tuesday by Nyamira Senator Kennedy Mong'are. 

In petition, Kibegwa wants the Governor to explain the circumstances under which Country Secretary Erick Onchana and other high profile workers were employed in contravention of the Public Servants Act.

“I am writing to you as custodians of devolution to sermon the county government of Nyamira so that we get to know why basic public servants hiring procedures are flouted all the times,” reads part of the report.

“We are particularly concerned in the manner in which county secretary was hurriedly hired even without an advertisement and subsequent interview in accordance with the Public Service Act,” adds the petitioner.

The petition will be tabled again for further scrutiny and subsequent summoning of the county government officials for further deliberations and conclusions.
