Non-performing Cabinet and Principal Secretaries will be sacked after President Uhuru Kenyatta is sworn into office on August 29, reveals the Star.
In Uhuru’s second term, he will weed out all state officers who are likely to hurdle his legacy by not performing as expected.
“It will not be business as usual this time round,” a source close to the President opined. The President will be bolder and decisive compared to his first term.
“You can expect the President will carry a big broom that will sweep away those who haven’t performed as he seeks greater efficiency in the management of government affairs.”
The President will appoint his Cabinet after being sworn into office on August 29.
In his change, new faces from across the country including opposition strongholds are expected to come on board in a bid to foster unity.
His cronies mainly in the opposition strongholds are poised to be rewarded with state appointments.
And with a tyranny of numbers in both Houses, the source disclosed the President will not shy away from asking for help to pass legislations geared towards bettering Kenyan lives.
“Where he feels he needs more power he will not hesitate to ask Parliament for it so that he has no excuse for not delivering to Kenyans.”
Uhuru is focused on leaving behind a positive legacy in his tenure as Kenya’s President.
In his first term, his administration was dogged by massive corruption scandals with the NYS sh1.8 billion heist denting his governance.
Uhuru is expected to concentrate on his legacy in the first three years on his second term before wading into succession politics where his Deputy William Ruto is poised to run for the top seat in 2022.
“The DP will pick anyone from anywhere he believes can be his running mate. When that time comes, Central Kenya and other regions will have their take,” Jubilee vice chairman David Murathe remarked.
