Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has launched a head count exercise of all county employees to eliminate ghost workers.

The verification exercise that began on Wednesday, is aimed at identifying gaps in service delivery, establish the exact number of employees in the county and reduce wage bill.

Waititu took to his verified Facebook page to announce the exercise that began in Thika, Gatundu North and Gatundu South Sub County headquarters.

“The verification exercise will enable us weed out ghost workers,” Waititu said.

The Governor said he had received reports of ghost workers receiving salary despite them being out of service.

“There have been reports that some people on payroll may be retirees but still receive salaries,” he said.

The County boss noted that the exercise is necessary as it will help in developing a skill inventory and reconcile personnel records.

In Thika, the employees converged at the Thika Sub-county offices where county’s human resource officials from the monitoring and evaluation department conducted the count.

Waititu said all the county employees in twelve sub-counties must participate in the exercise which will be carried out periodically.
