Uhuru needs to name a Face of Kenya Cabinet

11 months ago, 5 Dec 12:40

By: Matt Gathigira

President Uhuru Kenyatta has assumed office after his swearing-in. He faces a tough battle uniting the country. The priority at the moment is to appoint the new Cabinet. When he took over in 2013, he appointed technocrats as Cabinet Secretaries and later brought in politicians. While some of the CSs have performed very well, others have failed miserably, both technocrats and politicos. As he appoints the new CSs, the country expects him to choose competent and hard-working people from diverse backgrounds representing the Face of Kenya. This team should help him execute the vision he outlined on Tuesday. These men and women must be people of integrity and who are willing to go beyond the call of duty in delivering on this mandate. This is because the President is likely to have only the next two years to secure his legacy before succession politics take centre stage. How President Uhuru will be remembered will depend mainly on the period between now and December 2019. His choice of Cabinet Secretaries, and how they perform, will be all-important.
