Saturday May 16, 2020 – Panic has taken over the Cabinet ahead of the looming reshuffle as President Uhuru Kenyatta inches closer to forming a Government of national unity with ODM leader, Raila Odinga, and KANU’s Gideon Moi among others.
According to sources, Uhuru is set to sack at least seven Cabinet secretaries, about 10 Principal Secretaries and Chief Administrative Secretaries.
Among those on Uhuru’s chopping board are Deputy Presidents William Ruto’s allies, those not keen on implementing the President’s Big Four Agendas and those involved in mega corruption scandals.
Uhuru has been consulting with key political players in the country such as Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader, Raila Odinga, KANU boss Gideon Moi and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka in what is understood to be part of consensus building that could see them nominate their allies for plum jobs in Government.
The State jobs are just some of the goodies on the table.
Other sources say the agreements that the Kenyatta-leaning Jubilee has been signing with other political parties are also meant to secure safe passage for the oft-talked-about referendum.
A confidante of Raila said that hot on the heels of the KANU deal, the ODM leader is poised to lead his party into a similar agreement.
