President-elect William Ruto exhorted public officials to focus on completing their duties in order to serve all Kenyans, regardless of their political affiliations.
Speaking at the Kenya Kwanza elected leaders’ inaugural gathering, Ruto emphasised that Kenya is a democratic nation.
“I am sorry public servants will not be available to do any political work, I want them to remain independent,” he stated.
He added that he is prepared to start keeping his promises as soon as he takes the oath.
Ruto promised that the Kenya Kwanza Government will serve all Kenyans without discrimination after presiding over a meeting with all Kenyan Kwanza leaders.
“I want to promise that our administration will have nothing to do with blackmail, the threats we have seen, or the fear being peddled around the country that you cannot talk to certain people because they don’t share your political views,” he said.
During the meeting, at least 10 Independent Members of Parliament who were chosen in the recently held General Election sided with Ruto.
At the meeting, which was attended by 24 Senators and 163 UDA Members of Parliament, Ruto pledged that his Administration will work to ensure that ‘no portion of this country is split’ and that ‘government developments would be brought to each and every region of this country’.
He promised Kenyans that his Administration will not snoop on their private correspondence, appearing to make reference to government eavesdropping.
“You can instantly resume using your phone; you are no longer required to utilise Signal or WhatsApp, he stated, referring to the widely used messaging services,” he said.
With the help of the secure messaging app Signal, you can send private text, video, and photo messages. Government leaders and cyber professionals who are concerned about the security of their communications are known to favour it.
End-to-end encryption is a technology that Signal and WhatsApp utilise to protect messages before they are transmitted across the Internet and your phone’s mobile network.
