The truth on reports of Uhuru sending all CSs on compulsory leave

Full explanation

uhuru allows css and pss to go on leave during the christmas period

Kenyans on social media on Thursday shared numerous reports claiming that President Uhuru Kenyatta had sent the entire Cabinet on compulsory leave.

Pulselive.co.ke, however, can authoritatively reveal that members of the Cabinet and their Principal Secretaries have been granted permission to take annual leave during the festive season.

The directive was issued through head of public service Joseph Kinyua.

The senior government officials will be required to appoint a senior official to play their role in an acting capacity during the period when they will be away.

In the spirit of allowing you to celebrate Christmas with family and friends, it has been decided that you can take Christmas recess with effect from Friday 21st to Monday 7th January,” Kinyua’s letter reads in part.

The head of public service issued the letter on 18th December and has in the past years made similar communication given that most government offices remain inactive during the festive period.
