Cabinet Secretaries Reshuffle 2019

The Cabinet Secretaries reshuffle has seen Principal Secretaries and Cabinet Secretaries retain their positions while others have been moved to other sectors.

In March 2019, President Uhuru Kenyatta reshuffled the Kenyan Cabinet Secretaries. This was as a move to have a representation of all Counties in the Kenyan Cabinet.

The reshuffle was preceded by a meeting between President Uhuru and former Prime Minister Hon. Raila Odinga in January 2019. In 2018, the two leaders shook hands and marked a beginning in Kenyan politics.

This “Handshake” was to enable the President to continue with the goal of achieving the “Big Four Agenda”.

Below are the new Cabinet Secretaries.
