Full Statement: Ruto's Ally 'Demoted' As Uhuru Reshuffles Cabinet

Kenyan Ministers Hired, Fired in New Cabinet Reshuffle - allAfrica.com

President Uhuru Kenyatta has today reshuffled his cabinet in a bid to boost service provision by his government.

In a statement released by Head of Public Services Joseph Kinyua, the new changes will affect the ministries of Devolution, Defense and Energy.

Defense CS Monica Juma will now be in charge of the Energy Ministry and will be replaced by Eugene Wamalwa in the Defense docket.

Wamalwa, who has headed the Devolution ministry will relinquish the seat to former Kericho senator and Energy CS Charles Keter.

Early speculations indicate that Keter has been replaced due to the Energy crisis currently being witnessed in the country, with fuel prices and electricity bills at an all-time high.

Below is the full statement from Kinyua:

The Head of State had earlier today ordered the Ministry of Energy to immediately institute changes as recommended by a taskforce he formed to reduce the cost of energy.

Uhuru noted that the cost reduction would be achieved through the reduction of the consumer tariffs from an average of Ksh24 per kilowatt hour to Ksh16 per kilowatt hour, which is about two-thirds of the current tariff.
