Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa fired
President Uhuru Kenyatta reshuffled the Cabinet on Friday morning.
Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa was sacked and will now be replaced by Education CS Amina Mohamed.
The executive order signed by the President read…“…committed to enhancing efficiency, transparency and accountability at all levels of Government through a governance structure and leadership that ensures rapid delivery of public services to Kenyans in every part of the Republic.”
President Uhuru appointed Prof George Magoha to the Education docket.
The Head of State also moved PS Susan Mochache to Health, Ali Noor(Cooperatives), Susan Koech(Wildlife), Peter Tum(Labour), Margaret Mwakima(EAC).
Principal Secretaries were moved as follows:
Susan N. Mochache, CBS-Ministry of Health
Mr. Ali Noor Ismail, CBS-State Department of Cooperatives
Dr. Ibrahim M. Mohamed, CBS-State Department of Environment & Forestry
Eng. Peter Kiplagat Tum, OGW-State Department of Labour
Dr. Margaret Mwakima, CBS-State Department of East African Community Affairs (EAC)
Dr. Susan Koech-State Department of Wildlife
The vocal Echesa replaced Hassan Wario in January 2018.
In February 2018, some Jubilee MPs were opposed to the inclusion of Echesa as a nominee for the Sports and Culture docket.
The move came after questions were raised about his academic qualifications.
During the vetting, Echesa presented sketchy education qualifications.
When he appeared before the panel chaired by Speaker Justin Muturi, some questions were framed in Kiswahili while other CS nominees were interviewed in English.
The fired CS is a former Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) youth leader in Kakamega.
