Kenyan governor sacks over 3,000 ‘ghost workers’


The Governor of Kenya’s Garissa county has ordered the removal of more than 3,000 false names on the county’s civil service  payroll.

According to reports, the names were discovered following a human resource audit.

The audit also revealed that most directors and their deputies were hired to head departments without having mandatory university degrees. And about 100 drivers were employed yet the county has only 12 vehicles in its transport department.

Governor Nathif Jama said a taskforce had been appointed where those complaining of unfair dismissal can present their case.
