Two week after taking oath of office as Kenya’s fifth head of state, President William Ruto on Wednesday unveiled his Cabinet members.
The unveiling of the cabinet came shortly after he held his inaugural cabinet meeting with former cabinet secretaries who served under former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Addressing the nation from State House Nairobi, the President unpacked to Kenyans the men and women who he entrusted with the responsibility of delivering his manifesto to Kenyans.
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has been appointed the Prime Cabinet Secretary.
Ruto also announced that Director of criminal investigations George Kinoti has called it quits.
During the unveiling of his cabinet, the President announced that Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai has proceeded on terminal leave.
Mutyambai had six months left before retiring.
“After discussing with Mutyambai, I have accepted his terminal leave,” Ruto said.
Ruto said he has also received the resignation of the director general of CID Kinoti.
“I have transmitted the same to the National Police Service to proceed with advertising that position,” Ruto said.
Ruto said they will get someone to act in the place of Kinoti.
