Ruto sets minimum conditions for the newly sworn-in Cabinet Secretaries

Ruto sets minimum conditions for the newly sworn-in Cabinet Secretaries informing them to be ready to work long hours.

President William Ruto set out conditions to be met by the newly-sworn in cabinet secretaries in the execution of their mandate.

Speaking at State House Nairobi, President Ruto said there is no time for celebration for the new Cabinet Secretaries saying they must swing into action immediately.

He clarified that one of the primary elements of the pledge was providing services to Kenyans.

The president cautioned against showing favoritism to family and friends, pointing out that positions in government required professionalism.

“I know that there are regional persuasions but I have not appointed any Cabinet Secretary for any county or community. I have appointed a Cabinet for Kenya to be served equally. 

“I have listened to you carefully, and you have sworn to serve the people, I did not hear anyone swear to serve their friends, families or religions. That is the minimum expected of all of us,” he stated.

Ruto further told the Cabinet Secretaries that long working hours await them.

He called on the families of the CSs to be patient with his cabinet noting that a majority will be working overtime to ensure that the Kenya Kwanza agenda is implemented.

“There is no honeymoon for you because you will be leaving office very late, so the spouses will have to forgive us,” President Ruto said.

The President also encouraged cabinet secretaries to traverse the country and interact with the people so as to know their problems and how to tackle them.

“I would encourage you to traverse this country even if you’re called tanga tanga…go to where the people are, listen to them, their issues and get a solution,” Ruto said.
