Why we refused to start new projects – Kenyan president
Written by NobleAdmin on July 20, 2018
Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta, on Friday directed that no government agencies should embark on any new project until they have completed old projects.
Kenyatta on his Twitter handle revealed that “the directive is aimed at stopping wastage of resources and the habit of government agencies abandoning incomplete projects before jumping onto others.”
“There will be no new projects that will be embarked on until you complete those that are ongoing,” said the President who spoke at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre where he addressed a meeting bringing together all government accounting officers including Principal Secretaries, Parastatal Heads, Vice Chancellors of Public Universities and Chairmen of State Corporations.
On the government’s website, an official statement said the “president issued the directive to all government accounting officers whom he warned would be held responsible if they sanction new projects without express authority from the National Treasury.”
