Job descriptions of the already advertised vacancies had been altered to suit various individuals targeted for promotion, which was against the earlier job descriptions developed with help and advice from the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), and used to set the salary structure;

Requirements for some positions had been downgraded for undisclosed reasons;

Some positions had not been advertised in some departments for undisclosed reasons yet similar positions had been advertised in other departments.

According to the aggrieved staff members, the following jobs were left out in the advertisement:

Economic Regulations Department

Economic Planner- level 7

Economic Planner II- level 6

Renewable Energy Department

Senior Technical Officer Energy Efficiency II – Level 7

Senior Technical Officer Renewable Energy II – Level 7

Procurement Department 

Senior Procurement Officer – Level 7 

Communications and Public Affairs Department

Corporate Communications Manager – Level 8

Human Resource and Administration Department

Head of Security – Level 7

Petroleum Department

Director Petroleum – level 10

This position was not advertised yet somebody (that is Senior Manager Petroleum) has contrary to the law been holding this job on acting capacity for more than two years now. This has led to a lot of inefficiencies in implementation of petroleum regulations, especially those dealing with safety and petroleum product quality. Although the Senior Manager Petroleum is supposed to be coordinating issues of safety and quality he has been left to handle boardroom activities hence neglecting these serious issues.

Electricity Department
