Ruto’s plan to appoint 49 Principal Secretaries after unveiling his cabinet

Ruto’s plan to appoint 49 Principal Secretaries across the state departments after unveiling his proposed list of cabinet

President William Ruto is set to appoint 49 principal secretaries across the state departments. 

While the Defense Ministry and the Prime Cabinet Secretary will each have one principal secretary, other ministries like Interior, Transport, Lands, Trade, Education, and Mining will each have three.

The remaining ministries will each receive two PSs.

This is after President William Ruto unveiled the proposed list of the cabinet.

Ruto kicked out President Uhuru Kenyatta’s entire team, except for Simon Chelugui and Monica Juma, and it’s highly likely he will have new faces as principal secretaries.
