President Uhuru Kenyatta made it clear that his government would select Cabinet Secretaries who are apolitical. He then went on to award Charity Ngilu with the powerful Lands docket before she was unceremoniously hounded out of office. Another politician who serves as a CS in Uhuru’s government is Najib Balala-who was moved from the Ministry of Mining to the Ministry of Tourism.
Here is a list of CS’s who can be said to be working while others are busy doing nothing..
Ministry of Education Cabinet Secretary: Hon. Dr Fred Okengo Matiangi
The First Education CS was the combative Prof Jacob Kaimenyi who was moved to the Ministry of Land, Housing and Urban Development in a mini-reshuffle by UhuRuto. Kaimenyi was always on a collision course with teachers unions thanks to his tactless approach in handling sensitive issues. His tenure was marred by prolonged teacher strikes that affected the smooth running of both primary and secondary schools across the country. Exit Kaimenyi enters Matiangi. The new CS has been branded Magufuli after the no-nonsense Tanzania President. It’s under Matiangi reign that KNEC officials implicated in exams cheating were fired. He has come with a raft of measure to transform the education system that included overhauling the 8.4.4 system of education.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Trade Cabinet Secretary: Hon. Amb. Amina Mohammed
She is eloquent, beautiful and intelligent-the right recipe for a Foreign Affairs CS. Amin Mohammed as proved to be a big asset in Jubilee. Her past position as Deputy Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) prepared her for a new role as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Trade. Amina played a key role in disentangling her boss from the ICC yoke.
Ministry of Public Service, Youth & Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary: Hon. Ms. Sicily Kanini Kariuki
The Public Service, Youth & Gender Affairs CS has taken her new appointment with gusto. She took over a ministry that was tainted with corruption and is fast gaining the trust of Kenyans across the political divide. Sicily Kanini is known for making impromptu visits to Huduma Centre to inspect if the employees working.
