DP Ruto Reduced To Spectator As Uhuru Makes Matiang'i More Powerful

DP Ruto Reduced To Spectator As Uhuru Makes Matiang'i More Powerful

A storm brews in the Jubilee government after President Kenyatta gave an executive order that makes CS Fred Matiang'i the 'second most powerful' person in the government reporting solely to the President. The Executive order names the CS the chair of the coordination and implementation of government projects. Sources say that this is a move to cement his legacy. Is Matiang'i an unsworn prime minister?

The order, released on January 21, 2019 names CS Matiang'i as the Chairperson of the Framework of the Coordination and Implementation of National Government Development Programmes and Projects. He will be deputised by the Cabinet Secretary of the National Treasury and Planning.

The Interior CS will chair a new committee of all CSes and supervise all government projects, including Big Four agenda.

The order makes the CS in charge of Interior and Security in charge of possibly every project within the country. A Prime Minister is the only designation that comes close to such responsibility. Is this a sign of some thing to come.


As per the Constitution of Kenya, the functions of the Deputy President are as follows;

 (1) The Deputy President shall be the principal assistant of the President and shall deputise for the President in the execution of the President's functions.(2) The Deputy President shall perform the functions conferred by this Constitution and any other functions of the President as the President may assign.(3) Subject to Article 134, when the President is absent or is temporarily incapacitated, and during any other period that the President decides, the Deputy President shall act as the President.(4) The Deputy President shall not hold any other State or public office.
After this announcement, many do not know what the DP is supposed to do anymore.
