The government says at least 400 heads of Procurement and Accounting Units have been cleared to return to work and resume their duties in the ongoing fresh vetting ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta during this year’s Madaraka Day.

In a statement Government Spokesperson Eric Kiraithe said due to the employer/employee confidentiality terms, communication to the officers as to the condition of return is to be effected by respective authorized officers.
