Fred Matiang’i has wasted no time in getting down to work following his recent appointment as the chairperson of a newly constituted National Development Implementation and Communication Committee.
The Interior Cabinet Secretary Tuesday morning chaired the inaugural meeting at Harambee House, in line with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Executive Order issued on Monday, January 21, 2019.
Apart from one CS said to have been out of the country, the 8 am meeting brought together all Cabinet Secretaries, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki and the Head of the Public Service Joseph Kinyua.
Matiang’i said they reviewed the implementation plans for all development programmes and projects to fast-track execution as directed by President Kenyatta through Executive Order No.1 of 2019.
The ministers will provide a weekly report to President Uhuru as part of service delivery, Interior PS Karanja Kibicho said on Tuesday.
“The committee identified challenges constraining effective execution and delivery of services,” Kibicho said.
He said the CSs will also present their recommendations to the President, highlighting how to address the challenges.
Kibicho said the Matiangi-led committee received and appraised implementation plans for the national development projects.
Matiang’i is expected to provide overall supervisory leadership throughout the delivery circle of all national government’s programmes and projects.
