“You will carry your own cross,” a tough talking President Kenyatta told his senior government officials on Friday.

Kenyatta  told Cabinet Secretaries, Chief Administrative Secretaries and Principal Secretaries that when it comes to managing public resources under their respective dockets, the buck stops with them.

The President said this after the CSs, CASs and PSs signed two oaths that bind them to higher standards of integrity and fidelity to the law as regards the management of public resources.

The first pledge signed by the officials was on general leadership and integrity while the second was an accountability pledge.

“You come into high office to act as the guardians of public resources, you are expected to doing much with as little as possible. Kenyans want to see their tax shillings being used prudently, resourcefully and for maximum gain for the nation,” said the President.



He stressed that the officials should know that he will take swift action against anyone found to be mismanaging public resources. “No amount of excuse will help. Each one of you will carry their own cross,” said the President at State House, Nairobi.

The signing of the pledges was conducted after the swearing in of the Chief Administrative Secretaries and new Principal Secretaries. The swearing in ceremony, which was conducted by Head of Public Service Joseph KInyua, was also witnessed by Deputy President William Ruto

The Head of State told the new senior State officials that he will expect the highest standards of integrity from them.

“My decision today that the oath of office you have taken be accompanied by an integrity and ethics code, both signed in public, is my demonstration of this commitment,” said the President. “I want to repeat, no one will be spared if caught engaging in corruption and abuse of office. The law will take its due course.”

He said he expects the officials to provide selfless service and to be dedicated to duty as they play their part in achieving the Big Four Agenda of “ a roof over many more heads at affordable cost, affordable healthcare for all, value addition and manufacturing for jobs, and ensuring that hunger becomes the story of the past.”

The CASs who were sworn in included Patrick ole Ntutu (Interior) Chris Obure (Transport and Infrastructure) Ken Obura (East Africa Community and Northern Corridor), Hussein Dado (Devolution and ASAL Areas), Colleta Suda (Energy), Dr Rashid Abdi Aman (Health), Ababu Namwamba (Foreign Affairs), Rachel Shebesh (Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs), Winnie Guchu (Water and Sanitation), Gideon Mungaro (Lands), Simon Kachapin (Education), Andrew Tumour (Agriculture), Abdul Bahari (Labour and Social Protection) and Nelson Gaichuhie (National Treasury and Planning).

The new PSs who took their oath of office were Gordon Khihalangwa (Immigration), Nelson Maria (Devolution), Macharia Kamau (Foreign Affairs), Kevit Desai (TVT), Peter Tum Kiplagat (Health), Charles Hinga (Housing and urban development), Hamadi Boga (Agriculture), Safina Kwekwe (Gender), Joseph Irungu (Water) and Julius Monzi Muia (Planning).

From C.J

“I BELIEVE IN YOUR GOD STEVE. I told you about my pain through the phone. I told you I don’t have faith anymore….I’m the kind that keeps everything to themselves and smile like nothing is going on…but on that  day, I don’t know how I opened up…You stopped everything you were doing and we prayed about 4 times.

I had no Faith coz I visited major hospitals here in USA where the different machines could not find anything. I was in extreme pain but I thought it’s normal to me and I accepted my painful life. But that was not true because now I am pain free. I pushed people away from me so as not to see me in pain but Your God did it for me.

MAY HE CONTINUE USING YOU. THANK YOU AND MORE BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. I still don’t believe yet that I can sleep without pain meds… your God came Himself… I shed tears of Joy🙏🙏🙏🙏 and I will Forever be Grateful.”

Miguna Miguna, Dallas-Based Promoter Clash over ‘Stolen’ $20,000 Raised During His US Tour



National Resistance Movement self-declared general Miguna Miguna is accusing a group of Kenyan promoters based in Dallas, Texas of stealing $20,000  from him during his tour to popularize NRM in the US city.

Miguna toured Dallas on March 10th, where he held meetings with Kenyan diaspora community and wooed them to support his NRM agenda.

His visit was organized by a Kenyan promoter, Steve Aseno, who among others; booked the meeting hall and arranged for Miguna’s flight.

The former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant delivered a speech to his followers in Dallas, which was followed by a fundraiser to raise cash to help him foot legal bills and fix the damaged doors, which were broken by police during his arrest at his Runda home.

Miguna now claims that Aseno swindled $20,000 raised from the Dallas meeting. He said the Kenyan promoter declined to give him the whole amount donated during the fund drive.

Aseno has denied the claims, stating that he even suffered a loss of more than $1,000 from the event.

The promoter said the event flopped after Miguna launched attacks on National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga over his unity pact with President Kenyatta, days before coming to Dallas.

Aseno said that several of Odinga’s supporters who had confirmed their attendance pulled out after Miguna’s attack on Odinga. Only 114 guests attended. Guests were charged $20 to enter the hall, $10 to take a photo with Miguna and $50 for an unframed photo of Raila.

“Because of Miguna running his mouth, he did not sell a single portrait and the donations became very few to the extent that most supplied had to take a cut for the sake of Miguna,” Aseno stated.

Miguna received $1,195 from the fundraiser and Sh$150 from the photos. Aseno has challenged Miguna to “use logic and explain where the figure of $20,000 came from.”
