Engineer Francis Maliti who headed the Environment docket was moved to the Roads ministry.

Joshua Musili was moved from the Roads ministry to Lands as Health chief officer Collins Sila moved to the Solid Waste Management department in the same capacity. He was replaced by Jacks Nthanga.

Catherine Ngarachu and Jackson Muthini were appointed acting chief officers in the Energy and Water dockets respectively.

Special Programmes chief officer John Muthama was moved to the Education ministry in the same capacity.

Rosemary Mulee was appointed External Resource Mobilisation chief officer while Engineer Charles Mutuku was appointed county chief engineer in the Roads docket.

The Government asked the public to be vigilant and report corrupt officers so as to launch investigations and weed them out adding that the public must receive services and development in a timely and efficient manner.

“My government will not entertain officers who do not care about development. Some projects have slowed down or not been sustained,” Mutua said as quoted by the star.
