Uhuru reveals the CS’s who have impressed him most

By Vincent Kejitan | February 23rd 2019

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday revealed that he has been impressed by female Cabinet Secretaries due to their diligence and professionalism in execution of duties.

Speaking at State House while marking this year’s World Thinking Day, the Head of State added that he is looking forward to a time when Kenya will have a female President.

“I pray to God and look forward to the day that I shall be sitting and listening to the first female President addressing the people of the Republic of Kenya.

“Some of my best ministers are women. Women understand the basis of servant leadership. Women understand that it is dedication to the family and the country that matters,” he said.

The female CSs are, Farida Karoney (Lands), Monica Juma (Foreign Affairs), Margaret Kobia(Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs), Amina Mohamed (Education) and Sicily Kariuki(Health).

President Kenyatta said Kenyan women have a great future and urged them to hold their heads high and realize their full potential.

“Nobody should put you down because you are girls on the excuse that you have no capacity.

“What really matters is the commitment to the family and the country. I will continue working and supporting the girl child and ensure women take their rightful place in our society called Kenya,” said the President.
