How ministries will be run after Ruto fired his Cabinet

By |

“During this process, the operations of government will continue uninterrupted under the guidance of Principal Secretaries and other relevant officials.”

President William Ruto has directed all Principal Secretaries (PS) to oversee government operations following the dismissal of his on Thursday.

While addressing the nation from State House, Nairobi, Ruto fired all his cabinet secretaries except Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, who also serves as Foreign Affairs CS.

He added that his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, is not affected by the changes as he is protected by the Constitution. The DP can only be impeached according to the 2010 Promulgated Constitution.

During this period, the President assured that operations of the government would continue uninterrupted under the guidance of PSs.

“I will immediately engage in extensive consultations across different sectors and political formations, with the aim of setting up a broad-based government that will assist me in accelerating and expediting the necessary, urgent and irreversible, implementation of radical programmes to deal with the burden of debt, raising domestic resources, expanding job opportunities, eliminate wastage and unnecessary duplication of a multiplicity of government agencies and slay the dragon of corruption consequently making the government lean, inexpensive, effective and efficient,” he said.

“During this process, the operations of government will continue uninterrupted under the guidance of Principal Secretaries and other relevant officials.”

He emphasized that he will be announcing additional measures in due course.
