Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) has kicked off staff validation exercise aimed at getting rid of ghost workers and imposters.

The exercise, which is set to run for the next two weeks, will see the Major General Mohammed Badi-led agency verify the 6,852 employees seconded to it from City Hall.

An ad-hoc committee had been established to oversee the exercise.

“The exercise is to ensure there is compliance among staff seconded to NMS as well as to verify if we have the right people on board so that we do not have a mix-up. We do not want people purporting to be our staff yet they are not,” read a statement from NMS.

The exercise will start with the compliance and enforcement directorate, which is made up of enforcement and inspectorate officers. The Rachel Maina-headed directorate has 1,046 officers.

“Following the appointment of the above committee to conduct staff validation exercise and report within 14 days, the committee has scheduled to commence the exercise from November 25, 2020, as per the attached schedule,” said the NMS.

The staff will be required to present letters of secondment to NMS from the Nairobi County government, original identification card, appointment letter, academic and professional certificates, last payslip and promotion letter if any.

“This is, therefore, to ask you to inform all the staff under your charge including those on offs and annual leaves to present themselves at their respective stations or venues indicated in the schedule for the validation exercise,” said Ms Maina.

The audit will continue until December 4.
