President Uhuru Kenyatta who is set to exit office ( Photo Courtesy)
After one decade at the helm of the country's political leadership, President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to exit office in the coming weeks. Unless the Supreme Court nullifies his election as Kenya's fifth President, outgoing Deputy President William Ruto is expected to take over the reigns of power.
As he inches closer to exit, President Kenyatta will not leave alone. A good number of senior Government officials could follow him into retirement, bringing to an end decades of civil service careers. They include:
1. Joseph Kinyua: After decades as a senior Government operative, Head of civil service Joseph Kinyua could finally be on his way to retirement.
A key insider in the Jubilee Government, Kinyua is one of the most powerful figures around President Kenyatta. And now way past retirement age, Dr Kinyua may finally decide to call it a day and retire once Uhuru exits office.
2. Kinuthia Mbugua: The exit of President Kenyatta could also mark the end of State House Controller Kinuthia Mbugua's public service career spanning over three decades.
The former Adminstration Police Training College Commandant is way past the retirement age but has been hanging around after losing his Nakuru Governor seat in 2017. But could Uhuru's exit from State House mark the end of his own civil service career?
