After the 24 nominees took the oath of office on Thursday, October 27, President William Ruto’s Cabinet is officially complete.
The Head of State officiated the swearing-in event, which took place at State House in Nairobi.
The first person to take the oath of office was Felix Koskei, who had been chosen to succeed Joseph Kinyua as the head of the public service.
After being sworn in, Koskei was given the authority to conduct the oath, calling the Cabinet Secretary appointments to the podium to make their individual oaths.
The first member of the Cabinet to take the oath of office was Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, who was followed by Attorney-General appointment Justin Muturi.
The third person to take the oath of office was Kithure Kindiki, who will serve in the Interior ministry.
Following that were the other CS appointees including Mercy Wanjau, the secretary to the cabinet.
With the exception of Simon Chelugui, the former labor minister who has been retained as a CS in Deputy President William Ruto’s administration, all Cabinet Secretaries take office immediately after being sworn in, bringing an end to the tenure of all CSs under President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration.
