President William Ruto has delegated his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, new tasks in the recent government reorganization. Ruto designated Gachagua to be in charge of the nation’s coffee sector improvements in Executive Order No. 1 of 2023.
The DP will now monitor the implementation of changes in the coffee sub-sector, a responsibility that previously belonged to the President’s office.
On Sunday, January 8, 2023, he formally registered as a farmer in the latest registration drive launched by President Ruto’s government.
“In line with H.E. President William Ruto’s directive for the FSP Household Farmer Registration, today at my Farm in Wamunyoro Village, Mathira West Subcounty, I was registered as an individual farmer by Assistant Chief David Mwangi of Sagana Sub-Location.” he wrote on Twitter.
Gachagua was also appointed to the Nairobi Rivers Commission docket, making him in charge of the government’s initiatives to clean up the rivers in the Capital City.
Gachagua’s new responsibilities include chairing the Cabinet Committees and managing the execution of Cabinet directives throughout all Ministries and State Departments.
The president also gave Gachagua’s office control over Devolution, making the Deputy president the key point of focus in the coordination of the 47 counties.
Gachagua will work with Constitutional Commissions and Independent Offices on issues requiring National Government participation, such as budgets, policy formulation, and implementation of their recommendations.
Along with managing Public Sector Reforms, he will also organize and direct the execution of initiatives sponsored by development partners, as well as perform any other duties the President may delegate.
