Is Kenyatta justified to complain about CSs who don't deliver?

By Nelson Koech | February 5th 2019

What President Uhuru Kenyatta is simply doing is firing the warning shot to members of his Cabinet. Which is very much in order, considering his position as the Head of State and Government and also the chair of Cabinet. 

Through his recent public pronouncement, where he also warned his ministers against engaging in politics, the President was also trying to make the public aware of the deliberations of the Cabinet. Members of the public were not privy to what was discussed at statehouse during the cabinet meeting.

Having said that, from his pronouncements, it is clear that the president has been toying with the idea of ousting some errant CS’s and he has chosen to make Kenyans aware that he will soon crack the whip. He clearly knows and has evaluated the performance of each member of his top team and knows their capabilities and shortcomings.

If you ask me, he is only subjecting senior members of his team to the court of public opinion before he sends some of them packing for non-performance and engaging in politics at the expense of service delivery. 

The president is a bold man, during his first term in office he sacked some of his closest allies who were serving in the Cabinet after allegations of graft were leveled against them. Last year, we also saw top government officials arraigned in court over corruption allegations.
