On Tuesday, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi will formally take over the position from immediate former Foreign and Diaspora Cabinet Secretary Alfred Mutua.
Salim Swaleh, the Prime CS’s office’s director of press service, announced in a statement Monday night that the handover would occur at the Railways Headquarters along Haile Selassie Avenue in Nairobi.
Following a brief reorganization of the Cabinet on October 4, Mudavadi was given the Foreign and Diaspora portfolio by President William Ruto.
The new responsibility given to Mudavadi, according to Head of Public Service Felix Koskei, is intended to advance Kenya’s national interests on the international stage and establish strategic alliances with other nations through bilateral and multilateral initiatives.
After the Cabinet was reorganized, Peninah Malonza was transferred to the Ministry of the East African Community, ASALs, and Regional Developments, and Mutua was appointed to take her place.
Mutua applauded the modifications and claimed that the President has put him in the ideal position to streamline the ministry.
The Ministry of Gender, Culture, Arts, and Heritage now houses Jumwa.
Following the Cabinet shuffle, Koskei stated on Friday that the Public Service Commission has assigned ministries and state departments to new office space.
Across from the Railways Headquarters, he claimed, Mudavadi’s office had been relocated to the Old Treasury Building.
However, the Prime CS stated in a statement that his office would continue to be at Railways.
