Ruto CS responds after his ministry is ranked among the worst docket

CS Simon Chelugui dismisses reports over his ministry (Cooperatives and Micro and Small Enterprise) ranked among the worst in terms of performance

CS Simon Chelugui dismisses reports over his ministry (Cooperatives and Micro and Small Enterprise) ranked among the worst in terms of performance.

Speaking to the media, CS Chelugui said his ministry was not ranked because it was not in existence in the year under review. 

“My attention has been drawn to a story published by a section of the online media platforms to the effect that my ministry performed poorly in the just concluded performance ratings. That is not true. The report that formed the basis of this slanted coverage clearly shows that there was no data for the Ministry of Cooperatives and MSME Development, which I lead,” he said.

He explained that his docket was totally new, adding that they signed their first performance contracts in October 2023. 

Notably, before President William Ruto took power, cooperatives were a department under the Ministry of Agriculture, while MSMEs were in the Ministry of Trade. 

Chelugui observed that although their data was not captured in the just concluded assessment, it would appear in the 23/24 performance report. 

The CS further stated that his track record in previous posts shows he’s a top performer, unlike the recent ratings.

Chelugui added that his ministry is integral to the accomplishment of Ruto’s bottom-up agenda. 

“My record as a Cabinet Secretary speaks for itself, from my tenure in the Ministry of Water to my stint in the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection. I have always been a top performer, so look out for this year’s performance ratings. The Ministry of Cooperatives and MSME Development is a key cog in the implementation of the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA). We spur economic growth through the key value chains such as dairy and coffee and also through the bolstering of MSMEs. My ministry is also the home of the Hustler Fund which is doing very well so far,” Chelugui said. 

Chelugui’s response comes after his ministry had not been listed in the latest performance ranking compiled by the Ministry of Public Service, Performance and Delivery Management for not posting satisfactory results.
