President Ruto Chairs Second Cabinet Meeting

President William Ruto presided over the second cabinet meeting on Tuesday at State House in Nairobi.

The meeting comes after the Labour Court temporarily halted the ongoing vetting of President-nominated Principal Secretaries.

Following a suit filed by the Law Society of Kenya, Justice Nzioki Makau ordered the National Assembly Committee’s vetting process to be halted.

The approval hearing had reached the second day, with four nominees scheduled to be vetted today.

Another priority agenda item is the growing insecurity in the country’s capital, which has spread fear among residents.

Mugging and stabbing incidents have increased in Nairobi in the last week, prompting Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome to change command.

The Cabinet approved a framework to settle all outstanding obligations owed to road contractors in the amount of Ksh. 92 billion through a bridge bond at its most recent meeting, just five days ago.

The Kabonyo Fisheries and Aquaculture Service and Training Centre of Excellence in Kisumu was also approved by the Cabinet. Through demonstrations and incubations, the Sh1B Centre will facilitate training, research, innovation, and best practices in Fisheries and Aquaculture.
