Kinyanjui claimed that the board defied an executive order to stop recruitment of staff following an audit report that revealed a bloated workforce. “Continued recruitment is likely to jeopardise recommendations of the staff audit report and expose the county government to litigation and a bloated workforce,” Kinyanjui said, adding that his administration shall not be bound by any appointment from the illegal recruitment. The governor was reportedly infuriated by a list the board recently released, of 582 shortlisted applicants for five positions of senior support Job Group “D.” The list allegedly contains at least three names of relatives of members of the board. Sources told the Sunday Standard that the governor is likely to petition the county assembly to disband the board. On Tuesday afternoon, the governor supervised the sealing of the doors to the offices of the board. They were welded shut.
