The government has frozen the "permanent & pensionable" terms of employment for entry level positions.
These are part of reforms to modernise our public service. Expect efficiency moving forward.

@spear are there plans to increase the retirement age from 60 to 65 years ? I have a friend who is retiring this July and says he got rumours there is a circular but haijafika etc....
@gashwin kuna kitu kama hiyo?

thats good news , though more than 27K employees will exit by July 2020.
Rotich in this years budget has frozen employment in non- critical sectors.....
Will this not seriously affect the public service?

sijasikia...i am meeting some gov people in an hour nitauliza.

on this one i wish to differ...going by the low standards i have seen in a lot of graduates they will be taking one to two years to break in and train...the government will therefore be paying for about one year of good service. let us hope the contracts will be renewable so the government benefits from experience.

I think 5 year contracts would be better . 3 years is a short period of time considering it be entry level.

yeah ,lazy ,inefficient employees will not have their contracts renewed .
In government it's not so simple, hata wale ambao hawaskizani with the bosses watakanyaga frame. Then government will have very high turnover since haujui if your contract will be renewed, ukipata job private sector unakanyaga inje. Some offices will remain vacant for long since government takes very long to hire
