“The Address outlined policy interventions aimed at ensuring that the sacrifices made by taxpayers are matched by fiscal discipline in the public service. The measures announced also seek to restore faith in public institutions by enhancing accountability, transparency, and the strengthening of good governance within them.

“In that regard, it is notified that His Excellency the President directed THAT the number of advisors in government be reduced by 50% with immediate effect,” the letter read in part.

Following the directive, the number of advisors assigned to each Cabinet Secretary has been revised from two to one.

Additionally, the number of personal staff attached to the CSs will remain as set out in the Public Service Commission (PSC) guidelines being two (2) staffers.

“Consequently, you are requested to assess the requirements of your office and indicate the advisor you would wish to retain to support you in the discharge of your portfolio mandate. Any advisors beyond the set threshold will be immediately phased out from the Public Service,” Koskei added.
