Clarification on Staff Composition and Deployment
Release date: Jul 08, 2016
Nairobi, 13th February 2016: Our attention is drawn to an article appearing in the February
12, 2016 Edition of The Star headlined “Luo dossier puts spotlight on Auditor Ouko.”
The article is erroneous and provides a selective and distorted version on the current staff set- up at the Office of the Auditor-General. Claims of “Luonization” of OAG is aimed at diminishing the status and role that the Office of the Auditor-General plays in calling for accountability in the utilization of public resources.
We hereby put the record straight on the following selective and dishonest distortion of facts carried within the story:
- Composition of Senior Management favouring members of the Luo community
2. Having hub directors protect the interests of perceived political zones
Staff performing senior management roles at the Office of the Auditor-General fall
under three different categories. These include Deputy Auditors General, Directors and
Senior Managers. These Officers head Departments, Divisions and Sectors.
The current set-up and ethnic composition is presented graphically:
