Several high-ranking Cabinet Secretaries in the Kenyan government might lose their jobs if the latest developments are anything to go by.
This is after several pro-government leaders called on President William Ruto to remove the officials from the government for what they say is negligence at work.
Some of those ministers who may lose their positions have also been accused of making reckless statements regarding the economic status of the country.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale are among Kenya Kwanza leaders pushing for stern actions against a section of Cabinet Secretaries.
Kivumbi.co.ke has prepared a list of some of the Cabinet Secretaries who might be transferred or fired.
Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria could be the first Kenya Kwanza Cabinet Secretary to be shown the doors.
Kuria has been boldly attacking critics of the President William Ruto administration over the recent hike in fuel prices in what has been misconstrued as ‘mockery over the welfare of Kenyans’.
On his X handle, the CS urged Kenyans to brace for the shocks.
“Global Crude Prices are on an upward trajectory. For planning purposes expect pump prices to go up by Ksh 10 every month till February,”
The CS further claimed that he was the acting President in the absence of President William Ruto and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.
- Davis Chirchir
Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale over the weekend called on President William Ruto to fire Energy CS David Chirchir.
This was after Chirchir said the government had nothing more to do to bring down the cost of fuel.
Speaking in Kakamega on Saturday, September 16, the high-ranking politician, who is a close ally of the Head of State, expressed his frustration in regard to the high cost of living and called for ‘immediate action’ against Chirchir.
“I want to tell the President the people you assigned have led you to a ditch,” charged Khalwale.
- David Ndii
President William Ruto’s close allies are calling for the sacking of economist David Ndii over skyrocketing fuel prices that have caused unbearable hardship for Kenyans.
This was after Ndii, who is the Chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers said he does not to believe anything the President and his deputy say.
“I don’t believe politicians and I don’t trust the government if you do either you are a sucker,” Ndii said on X.
This prompted Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to issue a warning to leaders and civil servants against making arrogant statements to the public.
- Ababu Namwamba
A few weeks ago, leaders criticized Youth Affairs, Arts and Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba over his leadership at the ministry.
For instance, National Assembly Deputy Speaker Gladys Shollei in an interview last month said that the CS has failed to discharge his duties as required duty and does not seem bothered about the well-being of the athletes.
While calling for his resignation, the Uasin Gishu Woman Rep insinuated that the athletes’ department is infiltrated by rogue officials who are leading the ministry in the wrong direction.
Other Cabinet Secretaries whose jobs are at risk include Alice Wahome (water) and Susan Nakhumicha (Health).
