President Uhuru Kenyatta has made changes in his administration in a move aimed at improving efficiency and dismantling cartel-like networks that were firmly getting entrenched in certain dockets.

The changes affect 30 top finance officers in the civil service, some of whom are responsible for processing payments for contractors in huge projects that the government is implementing.

Some of the affected state officials had stayed in the offices for more than five years, raising concerns of the emergence of cartel-like networks firmly in control of government tenders.

The changes saw Mr Amos Gatheca moved from the Interior ministry to the Treasury, taking over from Francis Musyimi as Principal Administrative Secretary.

His replacement at the Devolution ministry is Ms Sarah Kerandi who becomes the Chief Finance Officer at Ministry.

Mrs. Kerandi previously served at the Regional and Northern Corridor Development Department.

The changes were announced in an internal memo authored by the Head of Public Service, Joseph Kinyua
