News had it that we were not about to hear of the no-nonsense Cabinet secretary Fred Matiang'i in the new government, but lo and behold, he was present in the first Cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi.

The president and the CS have had nasty fallouts, and the 'reunion' has caught many by surprise.

Matiang'i took it a notch further as he did his farewell to Kenyans on his Twitter account.

"As my tour of duty comes to an end. I exult in the pride of knowing that we have not only honored expectations but exceeded them by important and evident milestones. History will vindicate our legacy. This has been made possible by working closely with you and other highly experienced, competent, and dedicated colleagues in the Public Service." the message read in part

He proceeded to ask that the next team taking over would conduct things in a professional manner.

“The just-concluded Presidential petitions and the subsequent ruling did not indict our expansive team across the country in any wrongdoing. This affirms our collective professionalism and due diligence to duty. Equally, it is my conviction that those tasked with facilitating the smooth transition to the next administration will exhibit similar professionalism."

KOT were on their usual selves as they pounced on the matter,

Saleem:The guy who called him a mere clerk lmao

Ebale Ya Zair: Is Matiangi attending the cabinet meeting?

Saleem: Matiangi ako area
