Vetting of procurement officers to go on

By: Maureen Kakah

All government procurement and finance officers should proceed on forced leave to allow their employer time to vet them, a judge has ruled.

The Employment and Labour Relations court gave the directive on Wednesday after setting aside its earlier orders stopping the audit.

Justice Onesmus Makau’s decision means the targeted officers will now have to proceed on compulsory leave.

10 days

The judge ordered all procurement and accounting officers to provide the required documents within 10 days —  by June 22, 2018.

According to the judge, the earlier order in favour of the petitioner, activist Okiya Omtatah, was issued without proper disclosure of facts.

In his ruling, the judge said any employer has the right to send their employees on compulsory leave in order to verify information.
