Internal auditors attached to the national government have appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and ensure they are promoted just like other employees.
Through a representative, the more than 500 auditors said they deserve to be promoted to the next job groups after stagnating in the same position for over six years despite advancing their education.
The official said there was disquiet among his colleagues after they were left out in promotions recently advertised where only career accountants and drivers in the Directorate of Accounting Services and Quality Assurance will benefit.
The same directorate houses the internal audit department.
The National Treasury, in an internal advertisement on April 6 invited accountants, finance officers, budget officers and drivers to apply for vacant positions totaling 944 in job groups J, L, M, N and P.
The advert is signed by principal administrative secretary Mutua Kilaka, and according to sources the beneficiaries will move up one or two job groups.
