President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to lead an economic strategy meeting Tuesday to Wednesday with nearly all of his cabinet, being the first crucial meeting after the Supreme Court ruling to uphold his victory on Monday.

The two-day event in which Deputy President William Ruto will be attending, will be opened by Mr Kenyatta at his Harambee House offices and later move to the Treasury buildings in Nairobi on Wednesday.

The meeting is allegedly out to address the economic sabotage strategies by the National Super Alliance, Kenya’s economic standing evaluation and way forward after the long electioneering period which had dug into the better time of 2017.

“Of key importance to the President is the impact that the lengthy election period has had on the economy and what must be done to ensure a quick recovery,” a Cabinet source said as quoted by the Star.

The meeting follows another held last week Tuesday, in which Mr Kenyatta met members of his economic team and African Development Bank. The meeting was attended by Treasury CS Mr Henry Rotich, Treasury PS Kamau Thugge and Deputy Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita.  

The meetings will also be attended by Cabinet Secretaries Henry Rotich (Treasury), Adan Mohammed (Industrialization), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Devolution and Planning) and Amina Mohammed (Foreign and International Trade).

On Tuesday morning, President Kenyatta received a copy of the 2017 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results from Education CS Dr Fred Matiang’i, which was later released at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).

The crucial meeting comes after the Kenyan shilling gained against the US Dollar as well as a sharp increase in stock sales at the Nairobi Securities Exchange on Monday after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the re-election of President Kenyatta.
