The Public Service Commission has announced plans to hold the second national dialogue conference on values and principles in the public service at Kenyatta International Convention Centre in Nairobi on 7th of August 2018.
The conference will bring together 1500 delegates from top leadership in national and county government institutions, media, and civil society among other stakeholders.
The acting chairperson of the Commission Amb. Peter ole Nkuraiyia made the announcement during a stakeholder breakfast meeting with editors of local media organizations at Hotel Intercontinental Nairobi on Wednesday 25th July 2018.
Amb. Nkuraiyia said the one-day conference will review progress on promotion, evaluation and reporting on values and principles in the public service and its role in the attainment of the national development priorities. He urged the media to partner with the commission in promoting the conference and create greater awareness about the values and principles of public service.
Speaking on behalf of the Kenya Editors Guild, the Vice Chairperson Mr Samuel Maina assured the Commission of media support noting that the media is a key partner in the promotion of values and ethical standards.
CEO Dr Alice Otwala said the Commission has a zero-tolerance policy towards corruption that ensures the recruitment and other human resource management processes are not influenced by factors other than merit.
During the conference, institutions that have excelled in the promotion of values and principles will be recognized and rewarded accordingly.
Also in attendance were commissioners Lawrence Nyalle, Dr Judith Bwonya, Catherine Omweno and deputy commission secretaries Simon Rotich and Jane Chege among others.
