NEWS JUST IN: Uhuru's Men Start Preparing for the Next President as IEBC Races Against Time

With three days into counting of the votes and tallying the same, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has continued to narrow down the numbers with an imminent announcement expected in due course as they announce the winner of this year's elections. With this regard, the preparations for the handing over from the current governor to the incoming administration has started to warm up as they awaits for the big announcement from Chebukati.

In today's move, the outgoing government has started preparations to usher in the next government as the declaration of results and winner draws near. Headed by the Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, the Assumption of Office of the President committee today held their first meeting to ensure that there is smooth transition.

“In fidelity with the dictates of our Constitution, I have this morning chaired the inaugural meeting of the Assumption of the office of President committee," said Mr Kinyua.

The committee which has the top brass in Uhuru's government include the Chief of Defence Forces Robert Kibochi, Attorney General Paul Kihara, Interior Permanent Secretary Karanja Kibicho, Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau.

Kinyua said that at the moment they are waiting for the IEBC to declare the winner before they hit the ground running to ensure that the next occupant of the house on the hill has a smooth transition.

"The committee’s core mandate is to facilitate a smooth transition from the current administration to the incoming administration. Substantively, the mandate of the committee will be triggered once the IEBC formally announces the results of the 9th August 2022 Presidential Election and declares a President-Elect," he said.
