President Kenyatta says he will be naming his new cabinet in the next few weeks.
Speaking when he read his new year message on Sunday at State House in Nairobi, the President said he expects the new team to help him achieve his Big Four agenda for the country, namely; food security, affordable housing, manufacturing and affordable healthcare.
“In the next few weeks, I will unveil the men and women to whom I will entrust delivery of the Big Four, and other programmes that will transform this country,” President Kenyatta hinted.
Stating out his expectations from those he will name in his Cabinet, the head of state said: “I will expect these men and women to serve Kenyans without partiality and with the very highest standard of integrity and efficiency."
Kenyatta further challenged all leaders from the family level to the elected ones to dedicate themselves to serving the people and pledged to lead by example.
“Whether you are the leader of a family or of a small community, an MCA, an MP, a Senator, a Governor or a Cabinet Secretary, your job is to serve, to work hard every single day to confirm that the choice in you as leader was the right choice,” said the President.
“I will work every single day in 2018 to deliver. I urge you to include in your New Year resolutions a pledge to greet every new day with a renewed dedication to add value in your job, and to become your neighbour’s minder and protector,” he promised.
