Hon. Kajuju reiterated her call for increased public outreach and education throughout the country to sensitise members of the public on the mandate of the Commission and to improve public service delivery.
Her sentiments were echoed by Commissioner Sati who said the commissioners expected to get support from staff to execute their mandate. He added that his desire to join the Commission had been inspired by the many success stories it had registered over the past few years.
On her part, Commissioner Ndung’u expressed her commitment to serve the Commission and the people of Kenya and challenged staff members to set the best possible example of an efficient and effective public service.
