Side Hustle –Cabinet Secretary for Roads, Transport, and Public works Mr. Kipchumba Murkomen now wants civil servants to also venture into taxi side hustles.
On Sunday, April 16, the CS advised civil servants to consider taking up side hustlers like taxi business to support themselves following delayed salaries.
The CS urged most of them to consider starting investments in taxi or taxi-hailing businesses as supplementary part time jobs.
“There’s a lady civil servant forced to engage in the taxi cab business as a side hustle to supplement her income, since civil servant’s salaries started coming late.
“She leaves work at 5 pm, switches on mobile taxi apps, and only returns home after she has hit the 5,000 daily target,” one Gabriel Oguda wrote.
And replying to this, the CS who heads the transport sector noted that this was a welcome move to the industry.
“This is very good news for our transport sector especially if you consider the challenges we have been facing in the ride-hailing sector, especially among the drivers,” he replied.
In an earlier statement made on Sunday, April 9, Murkomen had revealed that the government was unable to pay its employees in time but piled the blame on the former administrations.
