  • County Public Service Board cautions the candidates against fraudsters soliciting money.
  • Board CEO, Mr Nyangara Nyamwaya says all the candidates must be residents of Nairobi as a key requirement.

Nairobi City County Public Service Board has shortlisted 1, 686 applicants for positions in the Environment Sector under governor Johnson Sakaja’s ‘Green Nairobi’ initiative.

In a circular seen by The Times dated 23rd November, 2023 the candidates have been invited for interviews on 19th December, 2023 at Joe Kadenge Stadium (formerly City Stadium), along Jogoo Road at 6.00 AM.

Among key requirements for the recruits, the Board Secretary and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Nyangara Nyamwaya said all the shortlisted candidates must be residents of Nairobi county.

The Board CEO also cautioned the candidates and the public against falling prey to fraudsters promising them favours in the recruitment.

“All candidates and the general public are hereby cautioned against any phone calls from fraudsters soliciting money”, Mr Nyamwaya said in a statement.

He added that successful candidates will be hired as Support Staff I in Job Group ‘C’. They will be deployed to the Green Nairobi Sector comprising Environment, Water, Food and Agriculture sub – sectors.

A few months ago, the county government hired 3, 500 youths under Governor Sakaja’s ‘Nairobi Green Army’s in early preparations to mitigate flooding incidents in parts of the capital city due to El Nino rains, which had been predicted by weather experts.

The youths have since been involved in rigorous unclogging of blocked drainage systems in the various city suburbs.

They are also tasked with daily cleaning of the drainages and garbage collection, among other activities aimed at making Nairobi a clean city to regain its lost glory.

No serious incidents of flooding have been reported in the capital in the wake of the pounding rains. This lends credence to Governor Sakaja’s early initiatives to mitigate heavy rains that were anticipated.

The city governor is elated by the services being rendered by his ‘Nairobi Green Army’ environment team and has expressed confidence in their work so far.

On his Facebook page on Thursday 23rd November, 2023 Governor Sakaja wrote: “Our Green Army mko (you are) top. Nairobi is flowing. Thanks for the great work you are doing on our drainage system. Lazima iwork (it must work). Mkiwaona mtaa yenu wagotee (if you see them in your residential area appreciate them).
