‘It is time to live up to our promises’: President-elect Ruto

“Public servants will not be available to carry out political work for any political party, it is the only way we can have a government that delivers,” said President-elect.

President elect William Ruto has promised to unite all Kenyans noting that no part of the country will be left behind in the development agenda of his new government.

Ruto said no public servant will be intimidated and urged the public administration officers to render service to all Kenyans without discrimination on political affiliation.

“I’m asking all public servants who have been forced to take political positions in the just concluded elections to step back and be professional public servants and serve all Kenyans equally,” said Ruto.

“Public service will be a very important tool in the delivery of government programs and services. I expect the public service to serve Kenyans equally without any preference for communities and political affiliations,” he added.

The president-elect also said that he will ensure his Cabinet Secretaries can be summoned to Parliament and grilled on the floor of the House.

He said together with legislators, they will amend Standing Orders to ensure that CS’s do not just go to Parliamentary committees.

“We have discussed here with legislators that we will be looking at the Standing Orders. It has not been possible for CS to be interrogated by the legislature, some MPs have been answering questions in Parliament, we do not think that is the right thing to do,” he said.

He at the same time called on leaders elected on the Kenya Kwanza ticket to ensure they get to work immediately so as to deliver the commitments promised to Kenyans.

” Mama Mboba, Boda Boda, Beba Beba and the entire people of Kenya are expecting us to grow this economy. It is time to live up to our promises,” he said.

The president elect was speaking after chairing the inaugural caucus of elected Kenya Kwanza Governors, Senators, Woman Representatives and Members of the National Assembly.

10 newly elected independent MPs have also joined Kenya Kwanza coalition.

Earlier, he also hosted faith leaders led by Archbishop Philip Anyolo, Archbishop Anthony Muheria, Supkem National Chairman Hassan Ole Naado, Bishop Robert Lang’at, Bishop Ogonyo Ngede, Bishop Joseph Ntombura, Bishop Mark Kariuki, Bishop David Oginde, Bishop Kepha Omae Retired Bishop Silas Yego, among others.
