VIDEO: Uproar as Uhuru sacks all women CSs, including Amina Mohamed



Many Kenyans online on Friday expressed dismay at the lack of inclusion of women in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s new cabinet and the dropping of such big names as CS for Foreign Affairs, Amb Amina Mohamed, who has, in the past, been termed as one of the most efficient government officials.

Though the president said he would name more CSs in the coming weeks, many wondered why he did not see it fit to retain or name at least one woman CS in the new look cabinet.

Some cheeky ones even roped in the exceptional performance of female candidates in primary and secondary national examinations!


The President only announced names of those he has retained and some of those he has nominated.

Kenyatta sent packing more than half of his Cabinet which included all female CS.

Among those dropped are Environment Cabinet Secretary Judi Wakhugu, Water and Irrigation CS Eugene Wamalwa, Willy Bett (Agriculture), Jacob Kaimenyi (Lands), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Devolution), Cleopa Mailu (Health), Sicily Kariuki (Gender), Phyllis Kandie (Labour), Amina Mohamed (Foreign), Ali Wario (Sports), Racheal Omamo (Defense) and Adan Mohamed (Industrialization).

He, however, did not name their replacement.

Those retained in Cabinet are Dr. Fred Matiang’i who will head the Interior docket, Charles Keter (Energy), Najib Balala (Tourism), Henry Rotich (Treasury), Joe Mucheru (ICT) and James Macharia (Transport).

The head of state appointed new Cabinet secretaries who include Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko, former Marsabit governor Ukur Yatani and former Turkana Senator John Munyes.

Former Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua replaces Lawrence Lenayapa as State House Comptroller. Mr. Lenayapa has been appointed Kenya ambassador to Netherlands.

In the National Police Service, President Kenyatta dropped Ndegwa Muhoro as Director of Criminal Investigations and George Kinoti appointed to the position in acting capacity.

Mr. Joel Kitili and Samuel Arachi were also dropped as heads of Kenya police and Administration Police and were replaced by Mr. Edward Njoroge Mbugua and Mr. Noor Gabow.

Rift Valley Regional Coordinator Wanyama Musiambo has been promoted to deputy Head of Public Service.

Joseph Kinyua was retained as Head of Public Service while Nzioka Waita will serve as Chief of Staff.


“Fellow Kenyans, once again let me take this opportunity to wish each and everyone one of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Today, also, we celebrate our Kenyan children and indeed we should be proud of the achievements that we have made today.

Today being a historic milestone when we started the distribution of 33 million books to our children in our schools across the country.

For the first time in our history we have achieved a 1:1 ratio of book to child and this is first not just in Kenya but in many parts of the world. I am grateful that the Jubilee administration education reforms are gathering pace with the eventual roll out of our new curriculum.

Indeed as you may have heard, I have instructed the Ministry of Interior to work with the Ministry of Education to ensure that all our regional commissioners liaise with Regional Education coordinators to hold regional stakeholder meetings in all the regions of our country on education reforms, especially with regard to our new curriculum.

This will enable the public to participate and have a better understanding of the proposed new curriculum and its outcomes.

Indeed, all our children going to form one should start reporting next week and the Government has already released approximately Sh30 billion to all secondary schools in the increased capitation plan of supporting each and every learner with up to Sh22,400 to ensure that secondary education is accessible to all our children, and to ensure that we have equity across the country in terms of availability to education and equally to ensure that, as was there before, children who are still not of age and who couldn’t access secondary education are now able to access basic education until they are of a mature age.

Today, I call upon prudence in the use of all public resources meant for our children and this is not an issue, as I said this morning, that is debatable.

We must avoid wastage and misuse of these resources.

Fellow Kenyans, further to this and as I stated to you in my new year’s address, I did say that in the following weeks I will be announcing names of men and women who will join me in delivering our promises to Kenyans and today I wish to name a few of those to join me in working together to fulfil our agenda for Kenya and our fellow citizens.

Therefore, in accordance with the powers conferred upon me by Article 131 and 152 of our Constitution of Kenya 2010, I wish to state that I am retaining the following persons in my cabinet and shall reassign them accordingly their duties in accordance with article 152 (v (a)).

These are, The National Treasury Mr Henry K. Rotich, the Ministry of Tourism Hon Najib Balala, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development Mr James Macharia, the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of Government as well as Acting Minister for Education Dr Fred Matiang’i, the Ministry of Energy the Hon Charles Keter and the Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology Mr Joseph Mucheru.

Presidency reorganisation
Further, in accordance with powers conferred upon me by Article 132 (iv)(a), I have made the following appointments; Head of of Public Service will continue to be Mr Joseph Kinyua, the Deputy Head of the Public Service will Mr Wanyama Musiambu, the Chief of staff and Head of the Presidential Delivery Unit will be Mr Nzioka Waita, the Comptroller of State House will be Mr Kinuthia Mbugua.

New cabinet nominees

In addition and by the authority conferred upon me by article 152 (ii), I have nominated and forwarded the names thereof to the Speaker of the National Assembly the following persons for positions of Cabinet Secretary Hon John Munyes, Hon Ukur Yattani and Mr Keriako Tobiko.
For Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, MrLawrence Lenayapa.

I have today accepted the resignation of Mr Keriako Tobiko as Director of Public Prosecution under Article 158 (ix) of the constitution of Kenya 2010.

Kenya Police Service

Further, in order to enhance service delivery and efficiency within the National Police Service, I have, in accordance with Article 132 of the Constitution of Kenya and section 17 of the National Police Service Act, made the following changes in the National police Service.

For re-deployment, the following have been redeployed to the Police Service Commission for further re-deployment:

1. Joel Mboya Kitili – Former Deputy Inspector- General, Kenya Police.

2. Samuel Arachi – Deputy Inspector-General, Administration Police Service.

3. Ndegwa Muhoro – Directorate of Criminal Investigations.


I would also like to inform the country that on the advice of the National Police Service Commission and in consultation with the Inspector-General (of Police) and (in line with) Regulation 26 of the National Police Service Commission Act Recruitment and Appointments Regulations 2015, the following officers are appointed in Acting capacity until processed by the commission in accordance with the said law and these are:
– Edward Njoroge Mbugua appointed to Acting Deputy Inspector-General-Kenya Police Service
– Noor Yarao Gabao (appointed) Acting Deputy Inspector-General, Administration Police Service
– George Maingi Kinoti (appointed) Acting Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Fellow Kenyans, as I have said, over the next few weeks, I will be making further announcements to fill cabinet positions, to fill the positions of Principal Secretaries as well as our Sagas (parastatals) as we continue to populate the government with those that will be charged with the responsibility of executing our agenda for the next five years.

I thank you and may God bless you and may God continue to bless the republic of Kenya.

Thank you very much.

Heart-rending photo of ailing Njambi Koikai after surgery moves Kenyans



Radio journalist Njambi Koikai has posted a photo of her admitted in a United States hospital that has moved thousands of her fans, who are wishing her a speedy recovery.Koikai, a former radio presenter with the Nation Media Group, has been battling Thoracic Endometriosis, an abnormal growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus, which has seen her move from one hospital to another both in Kenya and overseas seeking treatment.

She says she has been in hospital for two weeks now and had four chest tubes inserted and also needs a walker to go to the bathroom and for physiotherapy.

She laments the endometriosis, which first manifested when she was 13 years old, had spread so much and the scar tissue plus the placement of wrong chest tubes back at Kenya created the mess.

“My cardiothoracic surgeon here cannot believe all what had been to my chest and right lung area.
God has been so great. Your prayers are reaching God’s ears, heart, soul and mind. He sees and hears all. Thank you for all your prayers, love and support. We all focusing on healing and therapy. So the last two weeks have been filled with agony, pain, tears and more tears. But we serve a living God. 3 chest tubes were removed 2 days ago and i only have one small one left. I’m now able to walk on my own. Breathe easy. Talk and laugh etc,” she writes.

Before the disease took a toll on her, Njambi was popular figure in the entertainment industry. Through her Street Empire Entertainment Company, the former Metro FM and QFM host and DJ organised and held various gigs across the country.

She is now appealing to well wishers to assist her financially through Jahmby Koikai Fund. Paybill Number is 490681. She has previously undergone a series of surgeries, the last one being in the United States last year.

We wish her a speedy and full recovery as soon as possible.
