8 CSs Uhuru is watching closely after he issued a warning
Uhuru warned CSs to quit politicking and focus on service delivery
President Kenyatta has required all his CSs not to engage in political debates and focus on service delivery in line with the Big Four Agenda, failure to which they risk losing their positions.
"The president is disappointed. Some of his CSs have totally failed. Their ministries are a den of corruption, yet they are busy campaigning instead of working.
"Some have openly opposed Matiangi's appointment and vowed not to report to him," one of Uhuru's confidants told The Standard.
The List of Shame
Sources further reavealed that the CSs who are likely to face a tough time with the President are Rashid Echesa (Sports), Amina Mohamed (Education), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture), Ukur Yattani (Labour), James Macharia (Transport), Sicily Kariuki (Health), Charles Keter (Energy), Adan Mohamed (EAC) and Simon Chelugui (Water).
CS Echesa is said to have received a severe tongue-lashing from President Kenyatta during last weeks first cabinet seating chaired by the Head of State himself.
"Echesa was told he is not a Luhya CS. There is no docket for Luhya affairs," the President allegedly told the CS.
After chairing the cabinet meeting, President Kenyatta told residents of Kajiado that he is willing to fire CS who are not working to give the job to unemployed youth who will work.
"During today's cabinet meeting I reminded our CSs that there are many young Kenyans who are willing and ready to work if they felt they (CSs) are not equal to the task.
"Those who have chosen to keep politicking instead of serving the people should be ready to give way," the President stated.
