During the ceremony at State House in Mombasa, President Kenyatta told the new State officials to support the government’s economic agenda by focusing on work that makes the lives of Kenyans better.
“You have a good mix and you will also mix with the existing colleagues. Even amongst you have seasoned politicians…you have also a lot of youthful energy around you.
“You combine this together, working with your senior ministers who have a lot of experience as well, supporting them and I am certain that we will make a difference in the lives of our people,” he said.
Lawrence Karanja, Wavinya Ndeti, Linah Kilimo, Anne Nyaga, Maureen Mbaka, Mumina Bonaya and Dr. Mercy Mwangangi Mukui were also sworn-in.
The President reiterated his administration’s commitment to the economic agenda noting the rich mix of youth and experienced officials in the team.
“The agenda as you will find from me is not a political one, as I said a few days is not a political one, it is an economic agenda. It is an agenda that is aimed at focusing on the work at hand. And I expect you to help me achieve that objective,” the President said.
The swearing-in ceremony led by Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua was attended by Governors Ali Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru) and Alex Tolgos (Elgeyo Marakwet).
