Baringo County Governor Stanley Kiptis has launched a head count exercise which is aimed at streamlining Human Resource placement in the county.

Speaking in Mogotio constituency, Kiptis said the exercise will also establish the total number of workers for proper management of salaries.

He said that the essence of the exercise is to allow the county to plan promotions and motivation of workers in the budgeting of Human Resource.

At the same time,  he added that the process is not targeting anyone but just to make sure that those who are working in the county are those who can deliver and have been employed using the right procedure.

Moreover, he said that the three day exercise will not spare those who were confirmed through the backdoor and he advises them to exit early so that they can reapply again using the right procedure.

He lamented that the county government over employed during the previous regime which skyrocketed the wage bill from 34 percent to 56 percent.

Kiptis hinted that they want to align knowledge and skills, capacity and potential of each staff to provide quality service for the county.


Baringo County Assembly speaker David Kerich echoed the sentiments made by the governor by saying that the Assembly will work hand in hand with the executive to see to it that the county improves in service delivery.

A County Team made of the CEC Members, Chief Officers, Human Resource Officers, Payroll Officers and Internal Auditors are the ones mandated to conduct the exercise in all the six sub counties.

The results which will be obtained from the exercise will be used to train, develop employees and to deploy them equitably.
