Garissa County Chief On The Spot Over Employing Family Members As County Dismiss The Allegations as Unfounded.
Unverified reports indicate that the Garissa County Governor H.E. Ali Korane has employed his closest family members including his sister, son and several nephews and nieces who are alleged to be working at senior positions in the administration. The report allege that despite the implied nepotism in their recruitment, the employees are not qualified to hold the positions they were appointed to. Their salaries are said to be ranging from 93,000 to 244,000 shillings. This is above the stipulated monthly pay for most directors and County officers.
The County has dismissed the report as unfounded and said that there are people out to politicize development. ”It is a gross misrepresentation of facts to allege that the Governor is employing his nephews and nieces” said a source who asked not to be named because they are not authorised to speak to the media on behalf of the government.
Few months ago Majority leaders Hon Aden Duale who is also the Garissa Township MP accused NFD counties of employing unqualified personnel in their administrations. The EACC has on Monday arrested senior employees from Marsabit County
