Nandi awards contracts to more than 1,300 casual workers
Victim of politicsLocal leaders, including Senator Samson Cherargey, have accused Sang of allowing interference into the work of the county public service board. They claimed that the board was the victim of political players, who bring in workers they favour at the expense of the casuals who were sent home. On Wednesday, Sang denied accusations of discriminating against workers employed during the previous regime. “My administration is keen on uniting the county. We are not against workers from the previous regime. The county was faced with a tough decision in taming a ballooning wage bill,” said Sang. The headcount revealed that the county had 3,300 workers. The previous regime had 2,600 workers.
