President wrong on two nominees
| Nov 30th 2015 | 1 min read
The nomination of an MP and a senator as Cabinet secretaries by President Uhuru Kenyatta last week was not in the public interest.
Malindi MP Dan Kazungu and Kericho Senator Charles Keter were both nominated to head the mining and energy ministries respectively.
The President seemed to be political instead of looking at the good of the nation. Does this nation lack technocrats?
The Constitution requires that Cabinet should consist of non-politicians and technocrats. There are so many Kenyans with better qualifications who the President should have nominated, especially the youth and women.
The political nominations will be costly since the nation will lose money and time on by-elections, which will be held in the areas represented by the two politicians.
The National Assembly should save Kenyans from this kind of loss by rejecting the two nominees.
This country needs to develop and putting any part of the nation in election mood will not foster growth.
President Kenyatta has said enough on corruption; it’s time he actedThe renewed fight on graft by President Kenyatta is welcomed however, the suggestions that legal frameworks be put in place to curb the menace is misinformed
