We are ready to handle pay roll of our staff, says governor

By MUNENE KAMAU

Kirinyaga: Kirinyaga County is ready to handle the payroll for its staff, says Governor Joseph Ndathi.

 Mr Ndathi said the only impediment was the non-availability of a list from the Treasury containing those staff whose services have been devolved to the county.

The governor assured all staffers that their salaries would be promptly processed. “The kind of capacity we have built in this county in terms of pay roll handling and processing is enormous and we are ready to go,” he said  Ndathi was briefing the press on the development at his Kutus Town office, moments after feting children who performed well in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) from the County.

He dismissed as “prophets of doom” those claiming devolution effects have not been felt and invited them to conduct a tour of the various programs realized through devolution so far. The governor told those feted to continue aiming high and ensure the same spirit prevails through their secondary school life.

“I would want to see you being among the top Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) nationally when the results are released in February 2018,” he said.
