Interior Security Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki on Monday, March 27, announced that the ministry had assigned duties to the three Cabinet Administrative Secretaries (CASs) appointed by President William Ruto.
In a statement, CS Kindiki welcomed the three CASs appointed to his ministry noting that they would begin their allocated duties after the outcome of the ongoing judicial processes.
The new CASs appointed to the ministry include Millicent Omanga, Samuel Ole Tunai, and Mohamud Saleh.
“Congratulations to the newly appointed Cabinet Administrative Secretaries(CASs) on appointment in the Ministry of Interior and National Administration. Welcome to the Ministry,” the statement read in part.
Kindiki assigned Omanga duties in the State Department for Immigration and Citizen Services and will be in charge of reforms in the Civil Registration Services (CRS).
Additionally, the former nominated Senator will serve in the National Registration Bureau (NRB) and the Department of Refugee Affairs (DRA).
On the other hand, Mohamud Saleh will serve under the State Department for Correctional Services where he will be in charge of reforms in the Kenya Prisons Service(KPS)
He will also serve under the Borstal Institutions and the Probation Department.
The third CAS, Samuel Ole Tanui was allocated responsibilities under the State Department for Internal Security and National Administration.
The CASs were among 50 others who were named by President William Ruto on Wednesday, March 22, to their respective positions and sworn into office.
However, the High Court issued conservatory orders stopping the CASs from assuming office and barring them from performing their duties or enjoying any entitlements of the positions.
High Court Judge Justice Hedwig Ong'udi made the ruling on Friday, March 24, following a petition filed by the Law Society of Kenya and Katiba Institute to challenge the legality of the appointments.
