“I want to assure you that we are not in a hurry to get rid of you. Take your time. This is your country, this is your government and although there will be an incoming CS, I am sure you will hold his hand,” Gachagua stated.
The DP hinted at President Ruto’s administration giving the outgoing CS a position in government after maintaining that he will be called upon when need arises.
“You’re a senior citizen who has served this country with distinction and when need arises and we need your input and advice, I’m sure the president will be able to call upon you to come and help,” Gachagua said.
Previously, Magoha maintained that if his values align with those of the Head of State and the President finds it in his heart that he deserves an offer, then he will accept the offer.
President Ruto nominated Ezekiel Machogu as the Education CS.
