Mudavadi seeks to guarantee an inclusive, responsive, and accountable government through his office

The nominee for Prime Cabinet Secretary, Musalia Mudavadi, has said that his office will serve as a fulcrum for measuring governmental service delivery and cultivating public trust.

Appearing before the Committee on Appointments, Mudavadi began by defending his appointment, citing Articles 131(1)(b) and 132(3)(b) of the Constitution, which state that the president may delegate the responsibility for carrying out any functions of the national executive to any individual in line with the law.

“What is required of the president he publishes such a decision on how he intends to execute this requirement in the gazette, hence
Executive Order No. 1 of 2022,” Mudavadi said in his submission.

Mudavadi stated that the Office of the Prime Cabinet Secretary will lead the translation of the Kenya Kwanza plan’s commitments to Kenyans into policy interventions, legislative measures, programs, and projects.

He also stated that the office will coordinate the executive branch of government to ensure timely, effective, and efficient delivery of government services, as well as continuously ensure effective reporting, transparency, and accountability by monitoring and evaluating progress in the implementation of government policies, programs, and projects.

“The vision therefore is that of a better public service that delivers on the needs of the people with a results-oriented focus; works in collaboration with the public, legislature, and other stakeholders; whilst requiring integrity and transparency in the process of implementation,” Mudavadi said.

Mudavadi stated that his office will support the mainstreaming of ethics and integrity in the management of public affairs, as well as build an effective monitoring and assessment system, in the battle against corruption.

“I am a strong believer in confronting corruption head-on. To confront corruption, we must debunk the notion and culture that we hold public office
On our own behalf, and not as trustees for citizens. I would like to see anticorruption agencies given capacity to confront corruption – as by law –  without solicitation from any quarter,” he said.

Mudavadi urged parliament to use its oversight function to help stop the practice of “budgeted corruption.” He requested MPs to scrutinize budgets and eliminate the top-up kickback mechanism that is embedded in budgets making service delivery too expensive.

“It should never be that items that ordinarily cost Ksh 100 at the kiosk cost government Ksh 1,000 due to this kickback top-ups embedded in budgets,” he said.

Mudavadi’s scandals

Mudavadi defended his involvement in the Goldenberg scam saying he inherited the scam at the treasury at its tail end.

“As usual, some of the transactions were made behind my back when I had just taken over. I was therefore unjustly linked to it,’ Mudavadi said.

Mudavadi also claimed he was wrongfully tied to the cemetery scandal and that the court had declared him not guilty. He described these connections as the cause of his blacklisting by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), calling the decision a “retrospective injustice.”
