National Treasury and Planning CAS Visits KIPPRA
The Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) for the National Treasury and Planning, Hon. Nelson Gaichuhie visited KIPPRA on August 21, 2018 to familiarize with the Institute’s mandate and operations.
In his address to the KIPPRA management staff, Hon. Gaichuhie said he learned about KIPPRA while serving as the vice chairperson of the Parliamentary Finance Committee. He, however, noted that he did not have adequate information on the Institute’s mandate and operations and would be glad to learn more.
To explain KIPPRA’s mandate, Executive Director Dr Rose Ngugi made a brief presentation, which included the Institute’s inception, structure, achievements and various ongoing research and capacity building initiatives.
The CAS pledged to support KIPPRA achieve its mandate and aspirations, adding that he would regularly visit to learn more.
During the visit, Hon. Gaichuhie got a chance to tour KIPPRA’s recently established mothers’ room, which was set up in compliance with the Breastfeeding Mothers Bill, 2017 that requires employers to have special rooms for breastfeeding mothers to express milk for infants while at work.
