Uhuru, Ruto on lunch date a day after controversial appointment of Matiang’i

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, on Wednesday, shut down dispute rumours with a lunch date in Mombasa.

Uhuru hosted Ruto for a Swahili lunch merely a day after he re-organized his cabinet seemingly trimming down responsibilities for his deputy.

The meeting was reportedly a closed door one in which the two intended to discuss the President’s recent appointments that sparked talks all across the country.

On Tuesday, Uhuru appointed Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i as the new chairman for National Development Implementation Technical Committee.

 

Matiang’i, a brash go-getter, was tasked with supervising all state projects including the all-important Big 4 Agenda.

As the Chairperson, Matiang’i will also answer directly to President Uhuru.

This prompted several leaders to react to the changes including Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, a close ally of Ruto, who sarcastically congratulated Uhuru on his move.

 

 

“Congratulations to President Uhuru for the Exec Order 1 of 2019 and to my friends CSs Matiang’i and Henry Rotich for the additional responsibilities.

“We look forward to a more co-ordinated service delivery and greater accountability to the people of Kenya. God bless you William Ruto,” posted Murkomen.

VIDEO: Uhuru loses temper and deals with CS Macharia

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

In a video dating back to 2018, Chinese contractor and Transport CS James Wainaina Macharia seem to have crossed the president’s path.

President Uhuru Kenyatta made a surprise visit to a Chinese construction site where he found the construction work had stalled and started to enquire why.

He also enquired on how they had been allocated funds and listened as the CS and the Chinese contractor each gave a different figure, much to the Presidents dismay.

The CS tried to interject the President to save face for the Chinese but a seemingly infuriated Uhuru could hear none of it.

In defense, the officials from the Chinese company indicated that there was shortage of funding alleging that the project would be fast tracked had they received enough monies.

A 22 year-old-man who zipped up his one year-old daughter in a bag and attempted to smuggle her out of Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has been charged.

Boniface Murage Wangechi was arrested by security guards as he attempted to avoid paying a bill of Sh56, 937.

The young girl was admitted at the facility on January 26 and discharged February 11, 2019.

While appearing before Nairobi Milimani Law Courts resident magistrate Ms Caroline Muthoni Nzibe, the man admitted to the charge of attempting to commit a felony.

“It is true. Yes I attempted to go away with my daughter,” he told the court.

“I was fearing that my daughter and my wife, would be detained at KNH for long since I could not raise the hospital bill of Sh56, 937,” he added.
