Cabinet Secretaries (CS’s) on Tuesday morning attended a committee meeting under the National Government Development Implementation and Communication.
The meeting was the first to be chaired by Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Okengo Matiang’i following his promotion by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“The National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee has held our first meeting to review the implementation plans for all development programmes and projects to fast-track execution as directed by President Kenyatta thorough Executive Order No.1 of 2019,” confirmed CS Matiang’i in a statement on Tuesday.
Education CS Amina Mohammed, Najib Balala (Tourism), Raychelle Omamo (Defense), Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution), Rashid Echesa (Sports) and Henry Rotich are some of the Cabinet Secretaries who attended the meeting.
Also present at the meeting was Jubilee Party secretary-general Raphael Tuju.
Last month, President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed the interior CS the chairman of the committee on the implementation of development programmes, under Executive Order No.1 of 2019.
“The composition of the National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee and other specified committees for delivery and oversight of national government development programmes and projects shall be organised as set out in the structure detailed in the schedule hereto,” stated the order in part.
The committee’s membership includes all Cabinet secretaries, the Attorney General and Head of the Public Service.
CS Matiang'i is deputised by the National Treasury and Planning CS Henry Rotich. Matiang’i reports directly to the Head of State.
