ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi has dismissed claims that DP William Ruto is being sidelined in the Jubilee administration.

According to him, the appointment of Interior CS Fred Matiang’i by President Uhuru Kenyatta to oversee the coordination of national government projects is in line with the Constitution.

Speaking on Wednesday, the former vice president noted that Matiang’i’s new position is geared towards streamlining service delivery to Kenyans.

His sentiments were also echoed by Homa Bay County Woman Rep Gladys Wanga and her Murang’a counterpart Sabina Chege who said the presidency is a solid pact.

On Tuesday evening, President Kenyatta appointed Dr. Matiang’i as Chairperson of the National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee.

This means the CS will be in-charge of delivery of all National Government programmes and projects and will report directly to the Head of State.

Matiang’i will be deputised by Treasury CS Henry Rotich and the committee will include all Cabinet Secretaries, Attorney General Paul Kihara as well as the Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.
