TSC has carried out transfers and promotions of senior officials at headquarters and in the field.
The changes were caused by departures due to the retirement of former office holders and the need to increase service delivery.
The chief staffing officer at the Commission, was moved to the less visible field service to replace Mary Rotich who retired earlier this year.
Antonina, who was her deputy, is now acting on the office pending a substantial appointment. Staffing personnel is the most influential department in the Commission Secretariat.
Ms. Wahome, a former county TSC director, has had several confrontations with her employer. Last year, she was suspended for some time under unclear circumstances, but she was later reinstated.
She was head of staff, but insiders say she was not very visible in her duties as her boss was deemed to prefer to work with her Deputy.
The changes also saw the reshuffling of several county directors, deputy directors and sub-county directors as others were banned.
Kakamega County Director was transferred to Baringo to replace James Nyakweba, who retired earlier this year.
Until recently, Everlyne Kinaka, who was Nyakweba’s deputy, had acted as director. However, her hopes of being confirmed on her position were dashed following her interdiction after she was trapped in a scandal involving a questionable teacher-recruiting exercise in Tiaty’s subcounties.
Two sub-county directors of the region were also banned on the same charges. The officers affected are Juma (Tiaty West) and Jared (Tiaty East).
