President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced more changes in his government by making key changes. Among the changes included naming of more Principal Secretaries, Chief Administrative Secretaries and ambassadors. He has also nominated Noordin Mohamed Haji as the next Director of Public Prosecutions to take over from Keriako Tobiko who was named a Cabinet Secretary. The president also sent to Parliament for vetting and approval of Justice Paul Kihara Kariuku as the Attorney General. He also announced he had sent to Parliament the nomination for vetting and approval of Harry Kimutai as PS Livestock, Alfred Cheruiyot as PS Correctional Services, Prof Fred Sigor as PS Irrigation,  Jerome Ochieng as PS ICT, Susan Komen as PS East African Community and John M. Omenge as PS Mining. “I have appointed the following to the post of Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS). Eng. John Musonik (Petroleum and Mining), Hassan Noor Hassan (Sports); and Mohamed Ibrahim Elmi (Environment),” the president said. He also nominated as ambassadors Richard Titus Ekai, Eng. John Okuna Ogango and Wilfred Machage and forwarded their names to the National Assembly for vetting and approval. Coincidentally, the president failed to submit to Parliament for vetting the name of Abdikadir Mohamed whom he had nominated last month as the ambassador to South Korea. Noordin is a National Intelligence Service deputy director and has handled several positions since he joined the service. He was among ten candidates who were interviewed by a panel set up to look for the successor of the post. Haji said that having worked as an advocate and investigator he would streamline the operating structure of the office. “I would redirect the operations of the DPP to ensure more cooperation, especially with investigative arms,” he said. He said that he would also introduce an internal affairs department that would enforce strict ethics. He would also formulate disciplinary rules. He said that the reason employees were exiting the DPP’s office was because of poor pay which he promised to look into when formally appointed
