Employers should give their employees time off to travel home for this important national activity,” Mutua said. The governor directed village administrators, ward administrators, inspectorate staff and all county officers who may be concerned to ensure full compliance with the executive order. Underpinning the essence of being present for headcount, Mutua noted the exercise will inform key decisions in allocation of funds and development funding. “I urge Machakos residents who work and live out of the county to travel home for the census because when they are counted in other counties they are denying Machakos their rightful finance allocations,” he said. The governor warned that punitive action will be taken against those who will flout any of the directives. “Those who do disregard these set times will incur heavy punitive costs that may include canceling of their business permits, arrests and hefty fines,” he said.
