State orders procurement, accounting heads to step aside

The government has ordered all heads of procurement and accounting units in ministries, departments, agencies and State corporations to step aside as the war on corruption intensifies.

In a statement by Interior Ministry Spokesperson Mwenda Njoka, the public servants have been asked to hand over to their immediate deputies as the process to subject them to fresh vetting takes shape.

The officers are also required to submit information on their assets, liabilities and previous work record.

“Whereas the exercise is geared towards determining suitability to continue holding public office in the public trust, and promote confidence in the public service, the same will be undertaken in a fair and objective manner; exercised with due care and regard to officers’ rights as enshrined in the Constitution,” the statement reads.
