President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday nominated new principal secretaries, Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS) and ambassadors a few days after meeting NASA leader Raila Odinga.

Among those nominated is Suna East MP Junet Mohamed's brother-in-law Hassan Noor Hassan who will be the CAS in the Ministry of Sports.


Junet is a close ally to Odinga and was the only politician who accompanied Odinga to the Friday meeting the President Kenyatta.

However, Junet's brother in law is a Jubilee point man in his own right, having contested the Mandera gubernatorial seat on the Economic Freedom Party which is an affiliate of the Jubilee coalition.

Noor's appointment came shortly after the EFP threatened to defect from the ruling coalition.
