Who will this silly cabinet re-shuffle help?
After the President allegedly “read the riot act” to his ministers in yesterday's cabinet meeting kumbe the man was preparing to do a cabinet re-shuffle the next day which was announced in the middle of the day today.
One would have thought that he would have followed up his dressing down of the cabinet with some subtle signs. Like moving Messrs William Ruto and Kiraitu Murungi from the Agriculture and Energy dockets and putting other people there who will facilitate proper investigations in to what exactly happened. Even the ancient minister of Education should have been moved for his pedestrian way in handling the teacher’s strike as we complete a full week with our children basking at home and increasing expenses in the house in this usually “dry” January month. Instead Emilio’s agenda seems to be quite different and it is NOT in the interests of the Kenyan people.
Uhuru Kenyatta has been appointed Finance Minister and Amos Kimunya bounces back into the cabinet as minister of Trade. Now let me ask a question. Is the ministry of finance a preserve of the house of Mumbi only? Surely!! There are two ministries in Kenya that are notorious for being the preserve of certain tribes. One is Finance (where even business is transacted in Kikuyu) and the other is the Ministry of Health’s Afya house which can easily be mistaken for a market in Ukambani courtesy of the 5 years Charity Ngilu spend in that ministry during President Kibaki’s first tenure. The nice lady could not find any other tribe to employ at the ministry just as Emilio cannot find any other tribe for the Finance docket. I hope poor Oburru Odinga, the Finance assistant minister understands kikuyu.
Analysts see this joke of a cabinet re-shuffle as part of the PNU agenda to re-position itself for life after the current coalition by having its’ point men in strategic and important ministries. As deputy prime Minister and minister of Finance, Uhuru now becomes an extremely powerful individual.
But I think all this nonsense is really beside the point. Kenyans have now said enough is enough. The coalition government must go and we go back to the polls. We CANNOT wait until 2012. Hatuwezi kuvumilia. We need new leadership in Kenya now. For better or for worse. The coalition government must go NOW. The bloated most corrupt cabinet in the history of Kenya must go NOW. We want fresh elections NOW. The details of how that will be done with no electoral commission can be worked out. But Kenyans have spoken. The coalition government MUST GO. The whole damn LOT.
STOP PRESS: Latest Steadman poll shows that only 20% Kenyans have faith in the Coalition government.
