Machakos MCAs impeach CPSB as headcount sends jitters – Weekly Citizen

The push and pull between Machakos county public service board and Governor Wavinya Ndei took a new twist after the county assembly sent home the board.

The MCAs accused the board of stalling development in the county after it refused to approve nominees made by Wavinya.

The board that was appointed by former governor Alfred Mutua had panicked after Wavinya announced she would carry out a headcount of county workers.


The CPSB had overemployed by 142pc which means that a third of the workforce are ghosts In a letter from the county secretary and head of public service Muya Ndambuki, all CECs were directed to inform their staff “that they must avail themselves for this important exercise.

There are no exceptions and any employee who does not comply will be expunged from the payroll”.

Staff were expected to bring with them three copies of national ID, birth certificate, KRA PIN, letter of first appointment, letter of confirmation, academic and professional certificates, HR audit form, EACC self declaration form, copies of latest payslip and passport photos.

In a fightback, four CSPB commissioners dashed to court claiming that county inspectorate officials stormed CPSB offices, terrorised and ordered all staff to leave.

They claim the said inspectorate officers seized documents and confiscated all the keys to the offices.

This has however been dismissed as a red herring and wild goose chase attempt and the four have been challenged to show proof of the alleged raid from CCTV camera.

It is suspected the four took away the files themselves to hide evidence in light of the headcount
