Homa Bay Deputy Governor Hamilton Orata has threatened to fire county employees who will fail to register for Huduma Namba.
Orata further warned that the county would use Huduma Namba to audit their payroll.
Declaring these statements, the deputy governor noted that any county employee who fails to register for the number will be considered a ghost worker.
Speaking after he registered for the same at the county headquarters, Orata noted: “Any employee who wants to continue working with the county government must register for Huduma Namba.
“A person whose details fail to feature in the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) will be removed from the payroll,” Orata concluded.
According to Orata, the NIIMS will aid the county government reduce the wage bill by weeding out ghost workers and any other persons with double salaries.
Orata noted: “Somebody might be using different names to get double pay. We are going to use the Huduma Namba in streamlining our payrolls to weed out ghost workers.”
The Deputy Governor lamented that the county is currently having a huge wage bill following a high number of employees.
According to him, the huge wage bill can be attributed to the availability of ghost workers in the payroll.
Additionally, Orata highlighted that the NIIMS will also help the county to cease making salary payments to deceased workers.
