Wonders shall never end in Kitui County Referral Hospital.
Just a week after giving applicants 24hour to apply for vacancies in General Duty Casuals, Customer Care assistance, Billing clerks, Enrolled Community Health Nurse, Store keeper among others .
Successful applicants were given 6hrs notice to avail themselves for interview after which 3hrs after the said interview successful candidates had already been notified.
The manner in which Kitui Level IV hospital contacted in interview to recruit several workers including casual laborers has left people wondering whether it is still a public facility or a private entity.
A message is said to have been sent at midnight to different people who had applied for various posts in the hospital, expecting them to attend interview the following day as from 7:00AM TO 5:00PM.
“You are invited for an interview for the position applied for at the Kitui County Referral hospital on 29/06/2019 between 7am-5pm at the office of the medical Superintendent,” read the message which was sent to all the applicants.
Many questions have emerged from this interview which was conducted as an emergency response with a specific unknown course;
Why were the messages done at night and on a Suturday?
What necessitated the hurry?
Why were the applicants given less than 6hrs to appear before the committee?
Sources within the system indicated that as soon as the same Saturday 29th, successful interviewees had been informed to report on Monday, 1st July.
Our calls and texts messages to both the Med Sup Dr. Muthoka went unanswered.
Mismanagement and Mind game in the Health sector has been the order of the day as the same department had issued a job advert with less than 24hrs closing dates.
It’s Rumored that those hired have already given the “Bosses” their honeypot especially ladies, while men have had to part with some cash ranging between 5,000 and 10,000.
The recent scam in the health department comes a few days after a member of the County Service Board which is mandated with recruitment of county workers shortlisted himself for another job, few hours before expiry of his term of office.
