George Natembeya to county commissioners: Stop ‘chewing’ junior staff
By Kennedy Gachuhi | October 8th 2021
Rift Valley Regional Commissioner, George Natembeya has warned newly recruited Assistant County Commissioners (ACCs) from having sexual relations with their juniors and civilians. Natembeya asked the more than 200 recruits, who are fresh graduates, to ensure they maintain a positive image in their line of duty.
“Conduct your social life properly. If you go sleeping around with people in the villages, you will be in trouble as a person and bring shame to the government,” said Natembeya.
His sentiments come barely a week after police rescued a chief in Londiani, who was almost lynched by an irate mob in Londiani after he was caught in the act with a married woman.
“If you are an ACC and you sleep with a chief, it is equal to elevating that chief to your level. They will have reduced you to the level of a chief,” he said.
“Such a chief will not respect his equals and those in ranks between you and them. They will have the audacity to insubordinate their immediate seniors boasting that they share a bed with an ACC,” said Natembeya.
The ACCs will among other privileges have government vehicles at their disposal, which Natembeya warned them against abusing for personal use.
“Some of the drivers are very handsome. Don’t be tempted to ask them to accompany you for drinks, then, you end up sleeping together,” he said.
He added that any sexual relationships with government officers will be unearthed, asking them to only date civilians.
“For civilians, it will be a great achievement. They will be running around the villages telling everyone every detail of what they have done with you. But this won’t be the case with a government official,” he said.
He urged them not to lose themselves in the comfort of government facilities such as houses and vehicles, and instead focus on career development.
“You have landed a well-paying job while you are very young. Don’t forget about your life. Invest for your future. Learn to plan for your future early,” said Natembeya.
With high cases of corruption in the country, the commissioner warned them against being involved in any corrupt dals.
“Sometimes, you will have to take a bullet for the government before senior government officers come to make subsequent responses. Do not be part of a corrupt system if you find any,” said Natembeya.
