The fate of under-performing kitui County employees now hangs in the balance after Governor charity Ngilu threatened to sack them for derailing development in the county.
Speaking at mwitika in Kitui East sub-County, during a burial of a woman who died while giving birth Ngilu said that time has come to ensure effective service delivery to residents of Kitui county.
The county boss added that he would ensure that residents cease complaining about various unfulfilled promises brought about by lazy county employees.
Ngilu warned that he would not hesitate to crack the whip and send some of the employees home.
Ngilu is the only governor who has not fired County employees despite most of them being characters.
