The 2020 end of year Cabinet recess will commence on December 22 and end on January 3, 2021, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua has said.
In a statement to newsrooms today morning, Kinyua said the recess will give members of Cabinet a scheduled break from weekly Cabinet Committee Meetings.
“This is a break and an opportunity to honor and spend the festive season with their families ahead of a busy and momentous new year,” he said.
The Calendar of the National Security Council and the National Security Council Advisory Committee will also continue as planned.
“During the recess, scheduled presidential engagements will continue uninterrupted, while the calendar of the National Security Council (NSC) and the National Security Council Advisory Committee (NSAC) will also continue as planned,” Kinyua said.
Kinyua said the Cabinet, Cabinet Committees and Technical Committees will not have any scheduled engagements.
This is unless otherwise directed by the President for urgent business, cases of national emergency, or any other exceptional circumstances.
Kinyua said the 2021 Cabinet Calendar and Agenda shall anchor Kenya’s Covid-19 Recovery Efforts by spearheading recovery and resurgence strategies for the enduring benefit of Kenya.
