Stephen Kirogo took over the reins at the public service commission with a promise to revolutionize the critical sector in line with the government’s development agenda.
Kirogo pledging to rein in on bad elements within the public service in the wake of questions over the integrity of some public servants accused of acts and omissions that have cost the taxpayer billions of shillings.
He was sworn at the Supreme Court Wednesday afternoon, in an event attended by public service head Joseph Kinyua and officiated by Chief justice David Maraga.
Maraga challenged the newly appointed public service chair to reign in on corrupt public service workers with a focus on the lands sector which he termed as the most affected by corrupt practices.
Kirogo pledging to introduce a culture of accountability within the public service through the use of technology.
He will now serve for a six year non-renewable term and chair the board of eight commissioners following his appointment by President Kenyatta.
