PC puts lazy civil servants on notice
by Willis Oketch
The Government has told its workers to embrace good work ethics, saying lazy officers are tarnishing the name of the civil service.
Coast PC Earnest Munyi said indolent officers had dented the image of their hard working colleagues.
Mr Munyi said such bad behaviour had made the public believe civil servants are corrupt.
"Laziness among some civil servants is among reasons people think they are corrupt," said Munyi.
He spoke at the Mombasa Stadium during the Public Service Week, which entered the second day, on Wednesday. The PC asked civil servants to be honest and accountable.
At the same time, he appealed to those living along the banks of Tana River to move to higher grounds to avoid being swept by rains.
Munyi made the appeal after Provincial Director of Meteorological Department Edward Muriuki announced that El Nino had started.
Already, Lamu has received 68 mm of rainfall, Malindi 21, Msabaha 18 and Mtwapa 14.
"This is a sign that El Nino has started," said Mr Muriuki.
Munyi told residents living in sloppy areas to take precaution, as landslides were likely to occur.
