Kenya Power Company has notified all its employees to provide their personal and spousal details, tax records and account statements.

The details requested will be used in the fresh vetting process of the 7,000 employees of the company.

The General Manager, HR and Administration at Kenya Power Cecilia Kalungu-Uvyu made the announcement in a memo to company employees on Thursday

Kenya Power has given instructions to its employees on how to present the required information and where to submit the same.

The deadline for submission of the required details has been set for November 22, 2021.

“All staff members are hereby notified and urgently required to provide the information listed in sealed envelopes addressed to ‘Head of KPLC Vetting Team’. The envelope shall also indicate the name and staff number of the employee, to be received at the 6th-floor boardroom, Stima Plaza, by close of business, Monday, 22nd November 2021,” the memo read in part.

The memo also assured the company’s employees of the privacy and safety of the information they will provide.

“Staff members are assured that the provided information will be treated with utmost confidentiality, and in due regard to everyone's constitutional right,” read the memo.

The notice instructed staff members based in the regions to submit the information to their respective regional human resource office before the deadline.

The vetting exercise comes in the wake of investigations on the company’s financial operations.
