President Uhuru Kenyatta has issued a stern warning to all Cabinet secretaries, their Principal Secretaries, and Chief Administrative Secretaries to stop politicking and focus on service delivery to Kenyans.
President Kenyatta’s stern directive was delivered to the officials by Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i, stating Uhuru said all government officials must focus on service delivery to allow the government officials to be in the same page and have a one-government approach.
The head of the state’s directive was issued during a two-day induction course at the Kenya School of Government (KSG) in Kabete, Kiambu County for Chief Administrative Secretaries (CASs).
The training aims at equipping the CASs with the required knowledge on government policy and their roles and responsibilities in enhancing government agenda.
Speaking during the training, CS Matiang’i said since the president’s appointment of 10 new CASs and the reshuffle of others, he affirmed that he requires three things from the new incumbents under the one-government approach program, building and fostering a theme of togetherness, recognition that they were all equally accountable; reduction of bureaucracy and red tape.
Matiang’i further said, “His Excellency the President has been very vocal and clear that this will be a year of implementation. You must focus on delivering services for Kenyans and not politics.”
“You ought to be fully aware of all of the Presidential Directives and National Flagship Programs to which we have all dedicated significant energy, time and resources, ” CS Matiang’i told the CASs.
