The Cabinet Secretaries Uhuru is Set To Sack Next Week

Several Cabinet Secretaries will be sent home soon by President Uhuru Kenyatta as he moves to reshuffle his cabinet, sources have revealed.

Uhuru is planning to show the door to at least 4 Cabinet Secretaries, especially those whose ministries have been dogged by corruption scandals, while others may be moved.

According to impeccable sources close to the Standard Newspaper, the reshuffle and re-organisation could take place in a week’s time and would also include new parastatal appointments set for gazettement today (Friday).

One of the targeted CSs is said to have contemplated resigning recently when his ministry featured prominently in the news for all the wrong reasons. He was reportedly held back by his advisors and is now said to be one of those on the chopping block.

The National Treasury and ministries of Interior, Agriculture, Roads and Infrastructure, Education, Energy, Petroleum and Mining, and Sports are among those that have been dogged by controversy lately.

Fred Matiang’i (Interior), Adan Mohamed (formerly Trade and Industrialisation, and now East Africa Community), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture) and Henry Rotich (Treasury) have appeared before parliamentary committees to defend their ministries over the sugar and maize scandals.

Cabinet members have also been engaged in blame games. On the Ruaraka land saga, CSs Amina Mohamed (Education) and Farida Karoney (Lands) have given testimonies that have turned the heat on Matiang’i and Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang.
Charles Keter (Energy) has openly criticised the crackdown that saw 19 senior Kenya Power managers arrested and charged with corruption.
Last week, while addressing a meeting that brought together all PSs, CEOs and chairpersons of boards of all parastatals, Uhuru warned that the war on graft would not be derailed.
