Laikipia Governor Joshua Irungu has warned civil servants of dire consequences for absenteeism and absconding of duties. Speaking during the launch of 100-day rapid result initiative in Nanyuki town yesterday, Irungu said the days when civil servants "left coats in the office and attended their personal commitments" are long gone.
"The days when we used to just sit in our offices and expect a salary at the end of every month is long gone, gone with the winds of change," he said. Irungu said for any meaningful development in the county to be realised, they must now "sing a new song - the song of result oriented working culture".
He said there have been many challenges since the birth of devolution in the country and much time has been used in setting up new systems and structures.
