The Migori County government has been losing millions of shillings to what has been termed as ‘ghost workers’ every year.

According to Governor Zachary Okoth Obado, this county has been losing Sh7.5 million to ghost workers each year, since the his administration came in place in 2013.

The governor was speaking on Wednesday at the Migori County headquarters, after tabling a report of a head count exercise of public servants in the County.

The exercise was conducted between June 5th and 26th this year.

“The head count targeted 3,345 public servants who the county government has been paying. However, at the end of the exercise, only 3,078 workers turned up. The remaining 267 workers who never turned up will be shown the door since they will be regarded as the ghost workers,” said governor Obado.

Governor Obado applauded the judiciary for providing support and allowing the exercise to run smoothly, in a bid to improve service delivery to the people of Migori.

The governor promised to ensure that all the public servants are responsible for their work and mandate.

He said the major aim of his government is to ensure that the economy of Migori County is improved, which will in turn improve the living standards of residents.
