Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri is a jobless man after President Uhuru Kenyatta fired him today afternoon.
Uhuru made changes while in Mombasa. He moved Racheal Omamo from Defense to Foreign Affairs, Sicily Kariuki to Water docket and Simon Chelugui to the Labour docket.
Ukur Yattani has been confirmed as the substantive National Treasury Cabinet Secretary. This means that Henry Rotich has been fired.
New entrants to the Cabinet include Mutahi Kagwe as CS Health, Betty Maina as CS Industrialisation, John Weru ( PS Trade), Jwan Ouma ( PS Vocational and Technical Training)
Mary Kimunye ( PS Public Service), Simon Nabukwesi ( PS University Education and Research), Solomon Kitungu ( PS Transport) and Enoch Momanyi Onyango (PS Physical Planning).
Kiunjuri who had publicly defied Uhuru had shifted his support to Deputy President William Ruto who has reportedly fallen out with Uhuru.
Kiunjuri was part of the Cabinet that had defied Uhuru directive on Building Bridges Initiative. He sided with Ruto side as majority of CSs openly support Uhuru-Raila faction.
Kiunjuri sacking was nigh and according to close sources, he sensed he was about to be sent home.
