President William Ruto barred two Cabinet Secretaries from taking on any extra work and gave them instructions to cope with the El Nino crisis, according to deputy president Rigathi Gachagua on Monday.

During the emergency food delivery in Garissa County, Gachagua said that Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen, together with his EAC, ASALs, and counterpart Peninah Malonza for Regional Development, had been instructed to cease other activities and concentrate on counties impacted by the downpour.

The second in charge stated that Murkomen has the sole responsibility for managing the restoration of all the nation’s flooded highways. Kenyans complained about badly constructed roads that were impacted by severe rains, which led to the decision.

“Kipchumba Murkomen received an order from President William Ruto to stop all other projects until he repairs roads affected by the rainfall across the country and that is what is he doing now,” Gachagua stated to the audience.

Malonza will oversee the distribution of rescue food in all impacted areas, including Garissa, in the interim. The DP emphasized that the national government is making efforts to guarantee that the intense rains do not cause any more Kenyan deaths.

“The President has instructed CS Penina Malonza to abandon her current responsibilities. For the time being, she is responsible for purchasing food and making sure it is distributed throughout so that no one goes hungry,” he said.

In addition, the government has dispatched helicopters to help distribute food in areas inundated by flooding, among other measures to mitigate the consequences of excessive precipitation.In addition, Gachagua requested that other counties put an end to construction until the first quarter of 2024, when the rains stop.

While attending the food distribution exercise, CS Murkomen revealed intentions to fix the broken road connecting Nairobi and Garissa.Murkomen disclosed that the ministry was seeking long-term solutions to repair the nation’s road system and bridges, working with the Kenya National and Highway Authority (KeNHA) and other state organizations.

He continued by saying that Ksh100 billion has been allocated for road rehabilitation over the following three years. The World Bank and the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) were among the international investors who provided the funding.Malonza, for her part, outlined the steps her ministry was taking to meet the president’s objective.
