President William Ruto has announced the dismissal of all his Cabinet Secretaries except the Deputy President and Prime Cabinet Secretary.

Ruto said upon reflection, listening keenly to what the people of Kenya have said and after a holistic appraisal of the performance of his Cabinet and its achievements and challenges, he had to make a decision.

“I have, powers given to me by Article 152(1) and 152(5)(b) of the Constitution and Section 12 of the Office of the Attorney-General Act, decided to dismiss with immediate effect all the Cabinet Secretaries and the Attorney-General from the Cabinet of the Republic of Kenya except the Prime Cabinet Secretary and Cabinet Secretary for Foreign and Diaspora Affairs,” Ruto announced at State House.

The President said he would immediately engage in extensive consultations across different sectors and political formations, to set up a broad-based government.

”This 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 added.

Ruto revealed that during this process, the operations of government will continue
uninterrupted under the guidance of Principal Secretaries and
other relevant officials.

The President said he will be announcing additional measures in due course.
