What President William Ruto Said During his first cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi

President William Ruto is chairing his first cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi today.

A source told the Standard that it was a usual cabinet meeting with the president getting a briefing of the various dockets.

All cabinet secretaries from former President Uhuru Kenyatta's government were in attendanc.

President William Ruto is currently chairing his first Cabinet meeting, State House, Nairobi," read a caption by State House.

Those in attendance are; Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki), Joseph Kinyua (Head of Public Service) Fred Matiang'i (Interior), James Macharia (Transport), Farida Karoney (Lands), and Peter Munya (Agriculture).

Last week, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua said Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries who former President Uhuru appointed would remain in office until his successor names their replacements.

Speculations are rife that Ruto's Chief of Staff David Chirchir, and advisor Ababu Namwamba may get positions in Ruto's government. 

Current Lands CS Farida Karoney may be one of the two current CSs who may survive the chop, the other being Labour CS Simon Chelugui.
