Heading County Public Service Board (CPSB) at its formative stage is not an easy
task and requires a lot of dedication of time; as the Board works through broad work
plans and strict timelines. Embu County Public Service Board has religiously
adhered to all these and I must thank the Governor of Embu H.E. Martin Wambora
for the support he extended to us. Embu CPSB is composed of highly experienced
and qualified members who are strictly focused. Since our swearing in on 11th
July, 2013, we found a full tray with the general public, the County Executive and
County Assembly waiting with abated breath for one of the greatest task of the
Board; Placement of Human Capital. This is what I equit to the formation of a
governmentwhich cannot be devoid of qualified personnel. Everyone will agree
with me that there has never been a precedent of a county government and this is
the first in the history of Kenya. As such, the Board, carrying one of its greatest
mandates of creation and abolishment of offices, armed with articles 10 and 232 of
the Constitution, was ready to establish a Public Service that is responsive and able
to deliver quality service. Section 65 of the County Government Act 2012 provides
that equitability; based on gender, regional balance, people with special needs –
among other ingredients of equitability, were among the virtues that the Board
painstakingly observed, though with a lot of challenges.
Unemployment is one of the challenges in Embu County just like in other counties.
This places any employer in a precarious situation position trying to balance
peoples expectations especially because devolution was perceived to be the major
solution to unemployment. Another major challenge has been how to handle the
inherited staff from defunct Local Authorities whose competence, qualifications and
discipline was questionable . With casuals surpassing half of the total workforce
one is left wondering how to go about creating a lean and efficient County Public
Service and at the same time taking care of the balooning wage bill. The Board has
made deliberate efforts to handle this. The Transition Authority attempted to do a
complehensive Staff Audit and Skills assessment report which we have noted to
have some gaps. the board is in the process of engaging the Kenya School of
Government - Embu on the re-audit on what Transition Authority had done for
authenticity purpose.
Although this issue has not been fully concluded, I belief we are on course, as we
have involved all the stakeholders in coming up with an amicable solution to this
matter.
I can speak confidently that the CPSB is fulfilling its mandate with the competent
advise of the Secretary to the Board. Embu County is among the first to have
expedited recruitment of the most pivotal positions in the county. There is no
turning back, we are moving on.
God bless you all.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The Board has worked tirelessly to fulfill its mandate in management of Human
Capital. This is in adherence to Arcticles 10 and 232 of the Constitution that
requires the CPSB to promote values and principles as outlined by the constitution.
These values and principles are meant to ensure there is equity and fairness in a
competitive environment.
The Board recognised the need of replacing replacing officers seconded to the
county from the National Governemnt on interim basis by the Transition Authority,
whose terms was expiring on 30th September 2013. In order to operationalize the
governance of the County Government, recruitment of key County staff was of
critical importance. The staff was competitively sourced despite numerous
constraints by the secretariat that has not been fully formed bearing in mind that the
process of its formation is composed of a number of legal requirements. The board
is in the process of making the board a corporate entity and envisage we shall have
the first Strategic plan by June 2014. We have forwarded our proposed
organization structure to the County Assembly for approval to make our dream
come true. In the meantime, the we are in process of acquiring offices spacious
enough for the secretariat staff.
Despite the above, the Board utilized its members to carry out the recruitment of the
key position that were urgently required. This was challenging work that required
dedication and I need to thank the Board members for their determination.
This is the first annual report that is required to be submitted to the County
Assembly every December persuant to Section 59 of the County Government Act.
May I take this opportunity to also thank all the members of Embu County
Government for their contribution and co-operation towards making the County as
the best in the Country..
God Bless you all.
