Anxiety has gripped all cabinet secretaries (CS's) after President Uhuru Kenyatta.

the move by the Head of state indicates that some of the CSs could be leaving office as early as next week.

Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto head have gone for a retreat to finalise on the new cabinet line-up.

The President had warned that he would be sacking cabinet secretaries who under performed or were caught in corruption cases.

Sources say that at least nine cabinet secretaries will not be returning to their dockets in the second and last term of Kenyatta.

Former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar and Former Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba are some of the faces from across the political divide that are expected to be joining the new cabinet line up.
