While addressing the press on his first day in office, the second Nakuru County Governor said he was sending Mr Motari on compulsory leave as he awaits to be redeployed by the National Government.
“We wish to make changes in some of the offices starting with the office of the County Secretary. Mr Motari who is here on secondment will go on compulsory leave as we wait for him to return to the National Government,” said Lee.
Taking over from Mr Motari with immediate effect is Mr Benjamin Njoroge. Mr Njoroge has also been seconded by the National Government and is taking over in an acting capacity.
Other officers sent on a one-month compulsory leave include Wilson Mwangi the Director of Finance, Eliezer Ngarari who has been the Director of procurement and Joseph Kiara, who has been head of enforcement. Also sent on compulsory leave are Mr Charles Nyanaro and Dan Odundo who are Deputy head of enforcement and head of accounts respectively.
All the sub-county administrators, their deputies and ward admins have also been sent on compulsory leave. This, the Governor says, will allow for them to be re-evaluated.
“This will allow for their evaluation in a process that will look into their skills, suitability and possible re-engagement,” said Lee Kinyanjui who ordered those going to hand over to the new County Secretary Mr Benjamin Njoroge.
The Public Service Management Board has received a stern warning from the Governor about its past behaviour. Governor Lee noted that the board has been adversely mentioned in the past for recruitment malpractices including bribery and sexual exploitation.
“It shall no longer be business as usual. My Government will stop at nothing to initiate and facilitate any process that will ensure the resumption of credibility in this institution,” warned Lee.
