Mixed Reactions After Kenyans Notice The Following Person Was Present In Statehouse Meeting Today

Joseph Kinyua appears to still be in place a week after passing the torch to Felix, as new Chief of Staff and Head of the Public Service during the swearing-in ceremony of President William Ruto's Cabinet on October 27. This is true even though other recently replaced immediate former Cabinet Secretaries are fading from the spotlight.

Joseph, who garnered notoriety and respect in Kenya as a result of his friendship with the late President Uhuru Kenyatta and his years of public service, was observed in the White House on November 5 when President William Ruto received an IMF mission.Despite declaring on October 27th that he was "handing over the baton of managing the Public Service to a new generation of public workers," he was today seen in the State House boardroom for the President's meeting with Mr. Abebe Selassie, the IMF Director for Africa Department.

He had been sitting in the back of the boardroom, near to the recently appointed Deputy Chief of Staff Josphat Nanok, as shown in the images below.Kenyans who saw him in the pictures from the conference appeared to be impressed by his attendance, and others thanked him for his "diligence" and "humility" that have allowed him to serve in four regimes so far.Elijah l responded to his appearance by writing on a picture of him in the President's Facebook post that "Presidents' favorite Josephstill sits on the high table of decisions."

To be useful to four regimes, this man must be conscientious, honest, and a resolute adviser.A second Kenyan named Fred Kimz remarked that Joseph was still alive and was "a very dedicated civil servant."The President stated that "we are sure that the reforms we are making to our economy will create and sustain prosperity for all" in an update on the meeting with the IMF group.

We are making conscious efforts to strengthen the economy by, among other things, reforming the Kenya Revenue Authority, switching from consumer subsidies to production subsidies, increasing national savings levels, and emphasizing value addition.

We appreciate that the International Monetary Fund supports this approach.The CBK Governor Patrick, Treasury and Planning CS Ndung'u, President's Council of Economic Advisors Chairperson David, Prime Cabinet Secretary Mudavadi, and other prominent members of the Ruto government also attended the State House meeting.
