In a letter dated May 23, Foreign Affairs CS Amb Monica Juma said the officers will serve for a period of four years.
âYou are reminded that foreign service abroad is temporary assignment with specific time bound responsibilities and duties. The tour can be varied depending on performance exigencies of duty and prevailing service regulations such as performance, operational needs in the mission or headquarters, retirement age while on posting or indiscipline,â she said.
The CS said the officers will serve under the Heads of Mission in the respective countries that they have been posted to.
