Anxiety grows as President Kenyatta is yet to unveil full list

Seemingly Kenyans will have to wait for longer before the cabinet final list is out. The initial announcement of 9 persons by President Kenyatta had identified to serve in the cabinet would later lead to varied undertones on the fate of the 13 left out cabinet secretaries.

At least three weeks have passed and President Uhuru Kenyatta is yet to unveil their final list. This delay some say has been attributed to the 2022 succession politics, others claim it’s a tough balancing act for President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Sentiments equally shared by city based lawyer George Kithi. Constitutionally this delay has no impending risk and Kenyans might have to wait longer based on the underlying issues. Among the key issues being the quest for inclusivity. The President has so much to do maybe before 30th and opposition leaders have to offer someone.

Meanwhile lobbying is in top gear among the various cabinet secretaries left out in the earlier list. All trying to make a statement on their delivery factor. The role of the deputy president in the final appointment list has been misunderstood this is according to the city based lawyer who demystifies the notion that the cabinet appointments is purely the prerogative of the president use.

The Jubilee brigade has also joined in the debate and are in support of the initial list. President Uhuru Kenyatta is yet to forward the names of the three nominees Ukur Yatanni, John Munyes and Keriako Tobiko to the National Assembly’s speaker’s office for vetting by the appointments committee and house plenary -press
