NAIROBI, KENYA: Immediate former Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet, took an oath of office as Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) for Tourism and Wildlife at a ceremony witnessed by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.
Mr. Boinnet signed the leadership and integrity code and the accountability pledge in a ceremony conducted by Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.
Deputy President William Ruto, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and Tourism CS Najib Balala were among other senior government officials who attended the event.
The president also witnessed the signing of the Leadership and Integrity Code and the Accountability Pledge by incoming Inspector General of Police Hillary Nzioki Mutyambai who had earlier taken the Oath of Office at the Supreme Court.
The signing of the Leadership and Integrity Code and the Accountability Pledge by state officers is part of the Head of State’s unwavering commitment to entrenching ethos of good governance and integrity at the highest levels of public service. It is also in line with the President’s stand on absolute fidelity to the principles of transparency and accountability.
Congratulating the two, Uhuru said he looked forward to working with them in delivering quality services to Kenyans.
“I am looking forward to working together with you in our mission to deliver services to the people of Kenya,” he said.
He thanked Boinnet, saying he served his term with diligence and took the National Police Service to a higher level.
The Head of State urged the new IGP to work closely with his colleagues and members of the National Police Service Commission in order to deliver on the mandate of the service and in line with its motto of “Utumishi kwa Wote”.
