Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) is set to carry out an audit exercise to weed out ghost workers from the City Hall payroll in the next fourteen days.
The agency led by Major General Mohammed has established an Ad hoc committee to supervise the exercise that will verify the 6,852 employees.
“The exercise is to ensure there is compliance among staff seconded to NMS as well as to verify if we have the right people on board so that we do not have a mix-up. We do not want people purporting to be our staff yet they are not,” NMS statement read.
The audit will begin with the Rachel Maina led compliance and enforcement directorate that comprises of enforcement and inspectorate officers and 1,046 officers.
“Following the appointment of the above committee to conduct staff validation exercise and report within 14 days, the committee has scheduled to commence the exercise from November 25, 2020, as per the attached schedule,” NMS said.
City Hall staff will be required to present letters of secondment to NMS from the Nairobi County government, original identification card, appointment letter, payslip, academic and professional certificates during the exercise.
“This is, therefore, to ask you to inform all the staff under your charge including those on offs and annual leaves to present themselves at their respective stations or venues indicated in the schedule for the validation exercise,” Ms Maina said.
