THE Government has relaxed the tradition of recruiting experienced public servants and opened up for fresh graduates, a move that will take hundreds of them off the streets.
The Secretary of the Public Service Commission (PSC), Martin Lagara, told a parliamentary committee that permanent secretaries were instructed to declare all vacant posts in their ministries to be filled by fresh graduates.
Lagaraâ€™s was reacting to questions as to why many posts remain vacant in the public service and why some officials work in acting capacity for many years.
â€œIt was agreed at a permanent secretariesâ€™ meeting that they declare all posts to which fresh graduates can be considered. They are beginning to come in,â€ Lagara said.
The commission is in charge of recruitment.
