The newly appointed Kisumu County Public Service Board took an oath of office on the 30th of April 2019 in a ceremony presided over by the Resident Magistrate Beryl Omollo.
The board is expected to assume office immediately to take up the role of streamlining the Human resource of the county.
Kisumu governor Prof. Nyong’o who was present during the swearing in session at the city hall urged the board to deliver on its mandate without fear or favour but instead be just and truthful in performing their duties.
” Now that we have a working public service board in place. I urge members of the public to be patient and wait for the board to advertise for jobs, apply and wait for the results, reassuring that that recruitment process will be done in a free and fair manner without any discrimination.
Speaking after the swearing in, the chairman of the board Mr. Charles Karan promised that the board will discharge their responsibilities in strict adherence to the constitution.
“We shall be guided by the provisions of the County Government Act, the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and the applicable County laws from whence we draw our mandate”, said Mr. Karan.
