State House spokesperson Hussein Mohamed, who is also the deputy head of the presidential press service has issued a lengthy dispatch after president William Ruto, deputy president Rigathi Gachagua and other members of the cabinet held a lengthy cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi.
In the deliberations shared on social media, the cabinet has ordered that president William Ruto, deputy president Rigathi Gachagua, all cabinet secretaries and all principal secretaries will be required to do make a special move every time they appear in public for an event.
According to the new policy approved by the cabinet, the aforementioned government officials will be mandated to plant at least 200 to 500 trees before they leave the events in an effort to curb climate change.
"In discharge of the inter - generational duty to protect the environment and our heritage and splendour for the enduring benefit of the present and future generations, the cabinet resolved that all public engagements presided over by the president, deputy president, cabinet secretaries, principal secretaries and all cadres of state officers will be marked by the planting of the designated number of trees under the various categories of between 200 to 500 seedlings," the dispatch stated.
This means that the Kenya Kwanza administration is planning to take the bull by its horns by spearheading an ambitious tree planting program across the country.
