President Ruto swears in new CAS’s, asks them to serve with diligence

President William Ruto has officially appointed and sworn in all the 50 nominees who were picked for various Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) positions.

The 50 nominees who were expected to undergo parliamentary vetting were sworn in on Thursday morning after the Speaker of the National Assembly referred back the names to the Head of State noting that the August House has no constitutional authority to vet the CAS nominees.

Speaking at State House Nairobi after swearing in the new CASs, the head of state asked public servants to serve Kenyans with honour and dignity and added that they must routinely consult and agree to be informed so that they can help move the country forward. “It is time to come together, and work together, irrespective our political biases, to offer our much-needed services to the people,” he said.
The Head of State told the new CASs that he expects to see professionalism, skill, talent, energy and passion in action to “drive our agenda forward” and noted that progress is being made in uplifting the lives of Kenyans, but more will be done.

“We are also on track to delivering affordable fertilisers to farmers. Our goal is to produce more to feed more and alleviate poverty in the country.” He announced that the first phase of the Hustler Fund has disbursed Sh24 billion to 19 million borrowers in 36.5 million transactions.

The President explained that the Government is on course to delivering 200,000 new housing units this year even as it works towards bridging the five million gap. “Now that the formation of the Government has taken shape, we must work hard, serve the people with diligence as we further the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda.”

However, he warned the Chief Administrative Secretaries and other public servants that they must serve within the parameters of the law. “We are committed to a Kenya that will is built on the firm foundation of the rule of law. All of us are subjects to the Constitution, irrespective of our standing in the society.”

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, First Lady Rachel Ruto, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries, Members of Parliament, among other leaders, were present.
