The National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee Tuesday held its first meeting to review the implementation plans for all development programmes and projects to fast-track execution as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta through Executive Order No.1 of 2019.
The meeting was chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Co-ordination of National Government Dr. Fred Matiang’i.
According to a tweet, by the ministry of Interior said the team will provide solutions to challenges affecting delivery of various government projects, in line with the Big four agenda.
Last month the president through an Executive Order created the National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee which brings on board all Cabinet Secretaries, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.
The Matiang’i-led Cabinet Committee will provide overall supervisory leadership throughout the delivery circle of all national governments’ programmes and will report directly to the President.
Meanwhile, CS Matiang’i has unveiled a new Board at National Transport and Safety Authority as one of the Government’s measures to address mismanagement issues at the agency.
He singled out cloning of number plates as a challenge but promised to winnow out and bring to justice rogue officials colluding with criminals.
The sentiment comes a day after Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia appointed six members to the Board of the NTSA.
The changes come barely weeks after NTSA was moved to the Interior ministry for easier operations.
The transport Authority has been on the limelight for the last few days after DCI detectives raided the NTSA headquarters last week over a probe into possible links the authority’s employees had in the Dusit terror attack.
Six NTSA officials are in custody for 30 days after the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit obtained orders to detain them to allow for thorough investigations.
