Details have emerged that a major reshuffle that could affect a number of Cabinet and Principal Secretaries whose ministries have been adversely mentioned in the recent corruption scandals is on the way.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is seeking to stamp his authority on runaway graft, and set the tone for his legacy.
Also expected in the changes is the possible inclusion of opposition leader Raila Odinga’s interests in government, nearly 100 days after the famous handshake with the President.
According to Sunday Standard sources,the Head of State has been looking at intelligence reports and will soon “act” and purge corrupt officials from government.
In their place, Uhuru could replace them with individuals agreed upon with Raila in consultation with other arms of government, the source said.
On Friday, President Kenyatta gave the biggest hint yet of the impeding make-over after putting government officers on notice of immediate and mandatory vetting exercise involving lie detectors.
“Those who fail the vetting will stand suspended. I expect this exercise to be concluded before the start of the new financial year. You will hear of other tougher actions in the days to come,” he said.
The fate of at least four CSs and some of their accounting officers could be on the line.
