Infuriated personnel contracted to the Kenya Vision 2030 are up in arms against the secretariat’s Director General Mr Kenneth Mwige whom they accuse of poorly running the development programme by practising outright nepotism and actively promoting corruption at the organization.
Speaking on behalf of disappointed colleagues, a trusted source within the Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat (VDS) has exclusively revealed to us how DG Ken Mwige recently sparked shockwaves across the government-funded conglomerate when he blatantly acted against the law and fraudulently hired 3 staff members through a skewed recruitment process.
Apparently, the new employees simply show up to work, their paperwork is processed, details backdated and just like that, they have themselves a new job at the expense of a polite token of appreciation to the Director-General.
In the assertions anonymously presented to us, the insider further explains that this culture of dishonesty and deceit extends deep into all the corners of the Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat.
This includes the Procurement department where contracts are reportedly handed out through backdoor means.
Existing employees are often forced to forge supporting documents at the behest of the boss.
Recently, the situation deteriorated so badly that a section of jobholders at the programme took it upon themselves and reported the malicious activities to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission with high hopes that the long arm of the law would catch up with the culprits.
Unfortunately, the top brass or the secretariat led by the disgraced Director General are rumoured to have dipped into their deep pockets and frustrated the legal process.
Up to date, the EACC is yet to move a finger against them.
The official board, which consists of all Permanent Secretaries in Kenya is said to be unaware of these pressing issues hence no action has been taken from their side.
Kenneth Mwige, Director General of Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat has fraudulently hired 3 staff using fake interviews and fake recruitment processes.
In other words, someone turns up for work and his paperwork is processed by backdating everything backwards to look like he attended an interview and emerged tops.
The staff who were irregularly hired are: Florah Mwala, Dean Mutwiri and Fred Odhiambo.
The Director-General does the same fraud with procurement.
You find that contracts are given and staff ordered to backdate supporting documents.
This man is so corrupt that people have reported him to EACC and EACC has done nothing.
Why should we have corrupt people in office like him?
The Board is not aware, so please sambaza the information so that the Vision Delivery Board can take action.
The Board consists of all the PSs in Kenya,” the source writes.
The Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat (VDS) is a Semi-autonomous Government Agency established under the Kenya Gazette No.1386 (Vol. CXI – No 15 of 17th February 2009) and is charged with the mandate of spearheading the implementation of the Vision 2030 as the country’s blueprint and strategy towards making Kenya a newly industrializing middle-income country.
The VDS is led by the Director-General of Vision 2030.
