The first constitutional change has taken place without a referendum, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said.
Kuria was referring to the latest changes made by President Uhuru Kenyatta putting Interior CS Fred Matiang’i at the heart of the Executive.
Matiang’i will take charge of the implementation and monitoring of all development projects initiated and funded by the national government through a new Cabinet sub-committee.
The sub-committee will be known as the National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee.
It brings on board all CSs, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.
“Exactly what I had in mind when I proposed a Prime Minister and two Deputy Prime Ministers appointed by the President to assist the President and the Deputy President in these important roles,” Kuria said.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Kuria congratulated Matiang’i, Treasury CS Henry Rotich and Interior PS Karanja Kibicho for their big appointments.
According to the executive order dated Monday this week, Rotich will deputise Matiang’i in the Cabinet sub-committee.
The committee will also be chaired by Kibicho.
