CS Kindiki Says He Has No Reason To Resign

As Kenyans pile pressure on President William Ruto to crack the whip on his cabinet and even kick out some Cabinet members, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has ruled out the possibility of him resigning.

Kindiki said that had the idea of exiting office crossed his mind over the current crisis facing the country, he would have voluntarily resigned.

“As to when I am resigning, that matter has not crossed my mind because I do not have a reason why I should resign,” Kindiki said in an interview.

The anti-government protests have seen senior state officials including Cabinet Secretaries in President Ruto’s administration put in the spotlight over their performance in the nearly two years they have been in office.

A section of Kenyans including civil society groups, opinion shoppers and even religious organizations have called on the President to reshuffle his cabinet in line with the expectations of Citizens.

They have at the same time called for the sacking of Cabinet secretaries who have been deemed underperformers.

CS Kindiki has, however, been ranked the best-performing cabinet secretary by opinion polls released since Ruto took office.

During a roundtable meeting with the media at State House, on Sunday, President Ruto said his Cabinet could have done better in helping him lead the country.
