Uasin Gishu County: The county government of Uasin Gishu is carrying out staff rationalisation to improve its efficiency and contain the wage bill.

At the same time, the county’s revenue for the last seven months has improved eightfold.

Speaking in his office, Deputy Governor Daniel Chepno said those not be absorbed by the county will be transferred to the national government.

He said the exercise is being done in a professional way saying employees who served in the former local authorities and may not be absorbed by the county would be deployed to the national government.

Mr Chepno added that all positions in the county government are advertised and employment will be on merit.

“We want to have a new culture that will enable us achieve through effective service delivery to residents,” said Chepno.

He spoke at his office, where he dismissed a report by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) that ranked the county as the leading in bribery among regional governments.

“In the town’s main market, revenue collection improved to between Sh700,000 to Sh800,000 up from Sh100,000 monthly,” said Chepno.
