BREAKING: Kenyan President William Ruto has dismissed all of his cabinet ministers with the promise to form a new government

Kenyan President William Ruto has dismissed all of his cabinet ministers with the promise to form a new government that will be lean and efficient following weeks of protests over high taxes and poor governance. In a televised address, the president also dismissed the attorney general and said ministries would be run by their permanent secretaries. However, he retained Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Foreign Affairs Minister Musalia Mudavadi, who also acts as the Prime Cabinet Secretary. Ruto said he made the move after listening to the people, adding that he would form a broad-based government after a series of consultations. Kenya has seen three weeks of unrest in which protesters stormed into parliament on June 25 after a finance bill with tax increases was passed. More than 30 people died in the protests, which have morphed into calls for the president to resign.
