The committee comprises the secretary to the Cabinet, and principal secretaries from Treasury, Interior, Foreign Affairs, ICT, and Devolution, chief of defence, police IG, NIS director general among others.
Other than facilitating the handing over process by the outgoing president to the president-elect, the committee will organise for the security of the incoming head of state.
The teams will also organise the necessary facilities and personnel for the president-elect and co-ordinate the briefings of the president-elect by relevant public officers.
Kinyua will also facilitate communication between the outgoing President and the President-elect as well as prepare the programme and organise the swearing-in ceremony.
“Finally I wish to inform you that we will be making periodic briefings to the nation as the transition process kicks off,” he said.
Kenyans are eagerly waiting for the IEBC to announce the winner as local media houses changed tactics on the display of preliminary results on live TV. Supporters of both William Ruto and Raila Odinga's camps have already claimed victory.
