Monday morning came as a surprise for many county workers after the county Boss, Governor Godhana ordered gates closed after he realized that only 20% of the employee had reported to work according to the stipulated reporting time.
According to the governor, he believes that kind of practice has been going on for a long time inherited from the previous administration. He also declared tough disciplinary action would be taken against any member of staff as the behavior could not be tolerated under his administration.
We as the judge to the story will congratulate the governor for taking vast action against laziness portrayed by the county employee but do we really know the other side of story that lead to such actions by the county worker?

- Concerns on the Oncoming Staff Audit. – Some of the county employees had their own grievances pertain the staff audit scheduled on Friday, the 12th October. The county had on 8th issued notice for a staff meeting to be held at Hola Vocational Training Centre requesting county employees i.e County Directors and below to come with letters of appointment and academic certificates.
