President William Ruto’s decision to sack his entire cabinet, including Labour and Social Protection CS Florence Bore among others, was well received by Kenyans who had not quickly forgotten some of the issues and mishaps by the CSs that worsened for Ruto.

For instance, Labor and Social Protection CS Florence Bore’s time in office was filled with controversies, making her dismissal seem justified.

Appointed in January 2023, Bore quickly made headlines for the wrong reasons. Less than six months into her role, she was accused of trying to defraud Gatanga MP Hon. Eliud Muriu of a Karen home worth Ksh. 120 million. Bore denied the claims, stating it was Muriu who tried to double-deal her.

However, questions arose about how she could afford such an expensive property so soon after taking office.

And when Kenyans thought it was all over, Ex-CS Bore’s car expenses reached a shocking Ksh. 43.6 million, causing public outrage. This amount is nearly a quarter of her declared net worth of Ksh. 200 million when she became CS. Such high expenses in a short time suggested possible misuse of public funds.

All the same, Bore’s inability to avoid controversy and her involvement in questionable financial dealings seriously damaged public trust.

Instead of focusing on her duties and serving the nation honestly, she frequently appeared in the news for scandalous reasons.

Her actions and financial inconsistencies overshadowed any positive work she might have done.

President Ruto’s decision to dismiss Bore, along with the entire cabinet, seems necessary to restore accountability and integrity in the government, especially at a time when Gen Z has been opposing the government of the day.

Nevertheless, Ruto showed a commitment to addressing public concerns and ensuring that officials are held to high standards of transparency and ethical conduct. Bore’s dismissal highlights her failures and the government’s resolve to clean up its act and rebuild public trust.
