Binge-drinking chiefs warned: "You'll be sacked!"
Narok County Commissioner asked chiefs to carry out themselves in a manner that brings dignity to their work as they were the representatives of the government in their respective locations.
He also ordered them to conduct a crackdown on illicit brew dens in their areas of jurisdiction.
Chiefs in Narok County have been warned against excessive alcohol use that compromise their service delivery to the residents.
Narok County Commissioner Isaac Masinde says he has received reports that some chiefs were consuming alcoholic drinks during the day, making them unable to make sound decisions to the people who come seeking help from them.
“I want to sound a warning to chiefs who go to work while drunk that their days are numbered and they risk being sacked. The chiefs should be role models,” he said.
The commissioner asked the chiefs to carry out themselves in a manner that brings dignity to their work as they were the representatives of the government in their respective locations.
At the same time, the commissioner asked the chiefs to carry out a crackdown on illicit brew dens in their areas of jurisdiction, as well as close clubs operating without a license.
“You must be in uniform as you lead a crackdown on illicit brew. You should send such reports daily, weekly and monthly so that we can see your progress,” he added.
On security, the county security chief asked the local administrators to work with the police so as to inform them of suspected criminals with intention of terrorising innocent citizens.
“Do not shy off from reporting to the police any suspected criminals in your locations so that we can eliminate them early enough, especially those in informal settlements,” he said.
He called on the chiefs and their assistants to hold public baraza meetings at least twice a month so as to have a chance to interact with the residents and get to know what was happening in the community.
In the public barazas, the county commissioner called on the chiefs to speak about peace matters and give the residents enough time to express themselves, after which they are expected to submit the day’s report to his office.
