EMURUA Dikirr MP Johana Ng'eno has expressed concern over appointments in the Narok county government. Ng'eno said the county government should recruit professionals who are development conscious and non partisan.
He faulted the county government for employing "political sycophants". Ng'eno was speaking yesterday in Emurua Dikirr during the launch of a football tournament. He said Governor Samuel Tunai should consult other leaders before making appointments. Ng'eno said appointing the wrong people will stall development.
"The county government should ensure it appoints individuals to various positions based on merit rather than political alignment," he said. Ng'eno added that giving jobs on a political basis will hamper the delivery of services to the public.
"As much as the employment is done by the Public Service Board, the top politicians influence and push for recruitment of their favourites," he said.
Ng'eno said favouritism in public appointments is wrong. He said leaders should follow the right procedures in recruitment. "There are people working on constituencies and should they employ them on political basis, we will object to the decision," said the MP.
