President Ruto restores punctuality, no time wastage

President Ruto runs the government very differently from former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

During the previous regime, delays were rampant, and members of the fourth estate were always waiting for ex-president Uhuru to show up for public addresses.

On several occasions, if the media is invited for an address at 3 pm, it would end up starting hours later.

However, President Ruto seems to be changing the culture at the State House after three months in office.

The press invitation from the State House on Thursday had indicated that the swearing-in ceremony of the cabinet Secretaries would start at 11 am, but the event started about ten minutes earlier.

According to the sources, the president was also present for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) meeting at the State House, and it started at 7 am on the dot as announced.

Immediately after the CSs took the oath of office, there was no time for them to hang around with their families at the State House for photos.

They were seen moving out and heading to their offices as their predecessors were ready to hand over the office to them.

This, again, was not the case during the last administration.

Trade CS Moses Kuria took over from former CS Betty Maina and announced that the government will bring private investors for water and energy on board.

According to CS Kuria, the investors will help the government make money, which will be useful in its plan to avoid borrowing.

Former Agriculture CS Peter Munya also handed over the office to his successor Mithika Linturi.

Former Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua, who is the new Foreign Affairs CS, also took office from Raychelle Omamo.
