In pursuit of those goals, it will consider new ideas, and seek improvements in present practice.

According to Secretary of Communications and State House Spokesperson, Manoah Esipisu, the discussion will fall under three main themes.

“First and most important is the new constitution. As is common knowledge, the constitution mandated substantial changes in the institutions and practice of government. The President and Cabinet will attend to the changed governance environment, and review their performance under its new metrics. Equally, the executive will reflect on its relations with other arms of government,” said Esipisu.

“Second. President Kenyatta’s administration has set itself high standards in the management of public affairs. To meet them, it will refocus attention on its priorities, and analyse how best to match its personnel, resources and institutions to them. In particular, the Cabinet will study the case for pooling government expertise where different clusters of government have common or similar functions,” he added.


Public finance will be the third main item on the agenda.

Esipisu said the Jubilee administration transformational programme requires substantial finance and that the 2014 budget is the first entirely of the Jubilee administration’s own making.

He further observed the retreat offers an opportunity for the executive to complete its fiscal planning and that in light of public concern, there will also be careful deliberation on the public wage bill: the administration is keen to eliminate waste and corruption.

“The security of Kenyans, their good governance, and the restoration of Kenya’s leading role in the region remain the President’s priorities. The Cabinet retreat represents an important step in their achievement. To ensure clarity and coherence throughout government, Principal Secretaries will also attend the retreat.”
