Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja says his administration will introduce new biometric system cards that will help weed out ghost workers at City Hall.
Governor Sakaja says the new staff identification cards will have special features that can be scanned by city dwellers to ascertain that an officer works for the county government.
“The cards will have special features including a USSD query system. Once you scan and get a negative response, the trader being harassed can contact the county government customer care or report to the nearest police station,” he said.
Sakaja said the new system will also help curtail extortion and graft among county workers.
“We want to have a city of order. Extortion and corruption among staff members must stop and service delivery must prevail within our county,” he said.
Governor Sakaja noted that the system is in line with his plan to streamline operations at City Hall.
