Interior CS Fred Matiangí took the time to thank the president for his trust in them as cabinet secretaries, saying the past 10 years have been exciting working in public service and serving the country.
“The threat of terrorism still exists but a lot has been done to reform the security sector, we have enhanced capabilities and we are ready to meet all security challenges,” he said.
CS Matiangí said that under President Uhuru they have created a government where they effectively serve Kenyans saying that improved passport issuance, successful war against cartels in the Ministry of Education and passage of the country from analog to digital broadcasting are some of the highlights of its legacy. .
“President Uhuru has more than delivered on his promise, he has outperformed. He took our country to a whole new level. We have added 10,000 police officers every year, which translates to approximately 100,000 new police officers. We are now able to control the country effectively,” he said.
