1 Min Read

President William Ruto of Kenya has dissolved his cabinet with immediate effect.

This move comes two weeks after protesters took to the streets to demand Ruto’s resignation.

The cabinet dissolution does not affect the Office of the Vice President and the Prime Cabinet Secretary.

“I have decided to dismiss with immediate effect all the cabinet secretaries and the Attorney General of the cabinet of Kenya, except the prime cabinet secretary and cabinet secretary for diaspora affairs.

“The office of the vice president is not affected in any way,” Ruto said in a televised address on Thursday.

Ruto also promised there would be extensive consultations across different sectors and political formations to set up a “broad-based” government that will assist him in dealing with the burden of debt, raising domestic resources, eliminating waste and corruption in government and expanding job opportunities for the youth.
