Sixteen new officers have joined the department this year and few others last year taking up positions under short term contracts and on probationary positions within a number of wings and branches in the department.
HR Manager Lucy Kasu said, the new staff have come on board to fill critical positions within various branches.
She said, the need to fill these positions is imminent as supervisors require manpower in their respective branches and wings. The new officers included 5 females and 8 male on short term contracts and probationary appointments.
The officers will take up positions in Housing, GESI, HR , Policy , MIS and the Southern Directorate. One of the officers is a transfer from Fire Service.
Mrs Kasu said, the officers will definitely ease the need for manpower within respective branches and wings and we hope this will help boost the work output this year. “The department has to deliver on Secretary’s KRA and the boost in manpower will certainly ensure this happens,
