The Kenya Kwanza Government, on 9th January 2024, launched a week-long Government Performance and Delivery Roadshow, spearheaded by Public Service, Performance, and Delivery Management Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria. This initiative aims to assess the government’s accomplishments in the year since it assumed office. The roadshow sets the stage for an upcoming Cabinet retreat scheduled for February.

The focal point of the impending retreat is an in-depth examination of the progress made by various Ministries and State Departments in meeting their commitments outlined in the ambitious Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA). This scrutiny serves to evaluate the ongoing initiatives’ effectiveness and ensure alignment with the administration’s overarching vision.

Preparations for the retreat are well underway, with a specific emphasis on formulating the Administration’s Delivery Roadmap for the Year 2024. A recent Cabinet meeting earlier this month presented a comprehensive briefing on the ongoing Performance and Delivery Roadshow. This collaborative effort, led by the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Public Service, Performance and Delivery Management, underscores the government’s commitment to enhancing performance and delivery mechanisms. A summary of the scorecards presented by a number of ministries is shown in the table below:
