The Ministry of Local Government has received an overwhelming number of applications for the positions of special administrators.
Permanent Secretary Seema Sharma says a review has been carried out and the Cabinet has approved the search for new administrators.
Sharma says that some of those currently serving have reapplied.
“We had a lot of people who have applied; almost 300 applications have been received, and we are actually going through them. We also have a few who have re-applied.”
Sharma also says the performance of chief executives is also under review.
She says the review has been endorsed by the Cabinet.
