New Sports, Culture and Heritage CS Amina Mohamed has reacted hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta moved her from the Education docket.
Through her official Twitter handle, the former Education CS thanked the Head of State for giving her the opportunity to serve in his Cabinet and graciously accepted her new role.
She also congratulated Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) Chairman Prof George Magoha on his nomination to head the Ministry of Education and had special praise for all those who assisted her in making reforms in the sector.
â€œI congratulate my colleague in the sector @ExamsCouncil Chairman Prof. George Magoha on his nomination to @EduMinKenya. I thank all the sector players and development partners for their tremendous support throughout my headship at the Ministry,â€ wrote the new Sports CS.
She further added: â€œTogether, we made huge strides in deepening the sectorâ€™s Reform Agenda. We delivered credible 2018 national examinations, successful CBC roll-out, near 100% transition from primary to secondary (93% and rising) progressive TVET and University reforms, among others.â€
The Ministry of Sports was previously headed by CS Rashid Echesa who was fired on Friday morning.
President Kenyatta said the changes were cognizant of the need to better equip and orientate his Government in the implementation of its transformative vision for a better Kenya.
He added that the shake-up was â€œnecessary to embed operational enhancements and functional changes that shall make Ministries, State Departments and State Agencies better able to deliver on their mandatesâ€.
