President Ruto grants Musalia Mudavadi more powers to oversee performance management


President William Ruto of Kenya has approved an additional Ksh4 billion to address the ongoing drought situation in the country.

The Cabinet received a status report on the drought and the support being provided to school-going children through the school feeding program.

The move follows the Cabinet’s recognition of the worrying situation in the country and the need for a performance management function to entrench productivity as the Administration’s mantra while enhancing accountability.

The Cabinet also prioritized eradicating cattle rustling and banditry attacks in the North Rift region, placing it as a top priority of the Administration.

The directive was aimed at ensuring peace and security in the area.

In terms of education, the Cabinet directed that no Grade 6 learner should be turned away from school for lack of a school uniform as they transition to Junior Secondary Schools (JSS).

The Prime Cabinet Secretary is responsible for overseeing the implementation of national government policies in liaison with the Ministry of Interior and evaluating projects.

President William Ruto has granted Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi more powers to oversee performance management across all government ministries, state departments, and agencies.

The move came after a review of the Financial Year 2021/2022 Performance Contracting Cycle of all ministries and departments in the government.

The Cabinet recognized the need for a performance management function to promote accountability and productivity in the country.

Mudavadi’s new role includes assisting the President and Deputy President in coordinating and supervising government ministries and state departments, chairing and coordinating the National Government legislative agenda, and chairing the Principal Secretaries Committees.

The first contracting cycle will focus on ministerial priorities approved during the Cabinet retreat held earlier this year.

Overall, the move is seen as a positive step towards achieving the government’s goals and promoting development in Kenya.
