Aisha's Reforms on Public Service
If a promise made by the recently sworn-in Public Service CS, Aisha Jumwa, is fulfilled, government employees would be laughing all the way to the bank at the end of January 2023
Jumwa made a promise to raise all federal officials' pay within 100 days of taking office on Monday, October 31. She claimed that her decision was motivated by the general sense of demoralization prevalent throughout government agencies.
The CS highlighted that many of the workers battled with basic needs like paying school fees and rent on their present pay by drawing an analogy to her own experiences growing up in a poor household. The CS further committed during her tour to extending Huduma Centers' operating hours, noting that the service was essential to many Kenyans.
If implemented successfully, Huduma Centers' doors would be open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm as opposed to the nine-hour working day that currently runs from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Employees would be hired to work in shifts.
Jumwa was officially put in command of the Public Service Commission, the largest employer in the state, on Thursday, October 27, after being sworn in as the CS for Gender and Public Service.
