Matiang’i chairs first cabinet meeting at Harambee House

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has chaired the first cabinet committee, in line with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s executive order issued last month.

The meeting at harambee house brought together all cabinet secretaries, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki and the head of the public service Francis Kinyua. Matiangi was mandated to provide supervisory leadership in the delivery of all government programmes and projects and will directly report to the president, in what is reported to have caused a major friction within cabinet, leading to last week’s warning by the head of state to dissatisfied members of his cabinet to shape up or quit.
