”We will Hire Who We want” says Qorane
Few days after Majority Leader and Garissa Township MP Hon. Aden Duale threatened court action against what he claimed to be governors hiring unqualified staff, the Garissa County Governor H.E. Ali Qorane said his government will not take orders from anyone and has the prerogative to employ who he wants in his administration. The governor who appeared to be responding to the Majority Leader said people do not know how devolution works and county governments are not a department of the national government controlled from Nairobi. ” My government can pick a cattle herder from Abamatiro, Dekha harja, Dhamajaale, Shanta Abaq, Garissa Town and employ him where we think we need them” said the governor.
He assured the county employees that their job is secure.”The few employed in our government will remain working for this government. Let not anyone scare you as we will reemploy you tomorrow if you are sacked today. This government belongs to the people” said Governor Qorane.
