NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 11 – Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter says he will speed up existing plans geared towards reducing the cost of energy.

He assured that reducing the cost of energy will be his priority as he settles in the ministry.

“I want to assure Kenyans that we will try to reduce the cost of energy because energy drives the economy of this country”, said the Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary.

Keter made the remarks at a Nairobi hotel where his former campus colleagues hosted a congratulatory party in his honour and that of Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri following their appointment into the Cabinet.

Keter pledged to transform the ministry of energy and petroleum and improve service delivery.

“My brother Kiunjuri and I will go beyond expectation to deliver. We will transform organisations so that delivery of services will be beneficial to all,” he said.

He added: “I want to promise you as my colleagues, brothers and sisters I’m not going to let you down.”

Keter assured Kenyans that he will uphold good morals and honesty as he takes over the ministry riddled with integrity issues.

Kiunjuri urged Kenyans to work hard towards improving their lives through education because this would in turn push the development agenda of the country forward much faster.

“Any effort you take to develop yourself will have direct impact on the nation’s development,” said Kiunjuri.

The party was also attended by MP Kanini Kega who is also an alumnus of USIU.
