PSC Issues 9 Advisories to Ruto on Government formation

Following his proclamation as the president-elect, the Public Service Commission (PSC) has provided Deputy President William Ruto with nine advises regarding the establishment of his government.

The PSC's chairman, Anthony Mwaniki Muchiri, stated in a statement dated Wednesday, August 17, that the advise will aid the incoming administration in moving forward smoothly and providing better services to Kenyans.

The new government's structure, the selection of Principal Secretaries, and the education and appointment of Cabinet Secretaries were among the advisories sent out.

The issuing of appointment letters to new PSs as well as the departure of incumbent PSs, advisors, and personnel that worked for President Uhuru Kenyatta are examples of additional advisories.

According to PSC, the advice will assist Ruto's administration in ensuring seamless continuity of service delivery.

Regarding the contentious role of Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS), Muchiri said Ruto would make the final decision regarding the administrators.

The Public Service Commission head said, "These posts will be discussed between the incoming government and the Commission, and if they think fit that these positions should continue, then they will engage the Commission, and we will come to an understanding on these positions."

Additionally, PSC released a warning regarding the transfer of services from the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS), which during the administration of former governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko took over some responsibilities for the Nairobi City County government.

"Upon the expiration of the deed of transfer, we published an advise on devolution, intergovernmental relations, and processes for the transition of workers from Nairobi Metropolitan Services and related concerns," they added.

According to PSC, the advice was to "re-institutionalize and re-invigorate performance management, reform, and transformation in the Public Service."

If no petition is filed to contest Ruto's victory in the elections of August 9 then he will be sworn in as president on August 30.
