Kavila’s suspension came just four months after he had been served with a warning letter in March, 2020.
At the time, Machakos read the riot act to his ministers, accusing them of being lazy and selfish.
“Government decisions and executive directives must be obeyed and carried out to the letter. Altering them to fit one’s personal agenda or self-serving interpretation will not be tolerated,” Mutua stated in March.

Trade Industrialization and Innovation CEC Francis Mwaka was transferred to Tourism, Youth, Sports and Culture.
Ruth Nduku was moved from the Tourism docket to the Education, Skills Training and Social Welfare.
